Oh nice! how cool is that the see The Illusionists! I’d love to see them live for the first time ever! I’ve been a fan of theirs since their TV show started, but I’ve also always been a big fan of magic in general. Call me an enthusiast. I’ve always wanted to learn how to do those crazy tricks that they magicians do. If I can ever figure them out, I’d love to be an illusionist myself! Either way, this event is gonna be the bomb! Can’t wait to be there, I’ll be getting my ticket very soon! You don’t wanna miss this.
Oh heck yeah, I’m all in! This is going to be an explosive show! I’ve seen The Illusionists live at least once before and I was blown away! I was super impressed! Those things they do on stage really baffle and amaze me. They’re great! I’m looking forward to seeing them again and hopefully get some time with them behind the scenes. Doesn’t surprise me that they blow out box offices coz they definitely draw in massive crowds! I hope one day they pull me onstage to help them with a trick or two lol I’d be down for that too
This show is worth every penny! And it being so close to where I live, so that goes without saying – I’ll be there! Don’t skimp on this guys they will seriously blow you away! The Illusionists are some of the most talented showmen in the business. I can’t say enough awesome things about them, really, they’re so much fun to watch. If you’ve seen them on TV, it’s ten times more exciting when you see them in person! Don’t miss out coz you’ll regret it. If you see them on Broadway, you can thank me later 🙂 You’ll love the show!
Great show. Highly recommend
Love magic and love-lov this show.
