  • Absolutely AWESOME show!!! The day we went it was pouring down rain and Mr. Murphy greeted every single person outside while pouring out. If y'all have kids, they'll love this!!! He includes the children quite often and for my blind brother to be entertained..well that says it all!!! Hope y'all enjoy the show as much as we all did!!!
  • This was the best magic show ever! Its a small intimate theater of only 24 seats. The magician, P.T.Murphy is a true showman in every sense of the word. He made all of us feel like we were all friends by the end of the show. The tricks were intriguing and mysterious, no gimmicks here! I was thoroughly entertained for the whole hour. A must see if you are visiting Galena. I had no idea this place was here and I would totally go again. A great show for all ages!
