  • My best friend from childhood was visiting from Milwaukee and i wanted to do something fun and different while she was here. So my husband, my friend and I got tickets to Carnival of Illusion. The Mesa Center for the Performing arts is a fabulous venue and the small theater was just the right size for an intimate performance with every seat in the house perfect. The three of us absolutely loved the show. Roland and Susan were fantastic. They're super magicians and charming to boot. I highly recommend this show.
  • Excellent old world Magic Show! Small and intimate audience helped make the show fabulous! We took our 8 yr old for her birthday and it ended up that we all enjoyed it very much and keep talking about it!
  • Such an awesome night!!! Highly recommend for a special occasion, date night, or just if you like to have your mind blown with some sweet magic! Loved how interactive the show was. It was a limited audience size so even though we bough back row seats, we could still see everything and were very much involved... my husband even got called on stage to help with a trick! We have been talking about the show for days and are still totally in awe. Great time!!
  • Loved the whole experience. Roland and Susan and all of the crew are topnotch in how they create the atmosphere for there terrific performance. The Scottish Rite Temple only adds to the feeling of magic and anticipation. Can't wait for our granddaughters to add a year or two so we can share the experience.
  • Took my husband to see Carnival of Illusions for his birthday. Everyone was wonderful. Very nice atmosphere. Roland and Susan had a very entertaining show. We had a wonderful time!! I would recommend to friends and family for a nite of great entertainment!
