Bob has done something many magicians strive for; to present magic in a theatrical well acted story driven manner. From start to finish, there is never a dull moment. The show is full of magic, but also full of a story line that keeps you focused and interested in what will happen next. As a magician myself I commend Bob for elevating the art and giving people a glimpse of the many facets of being a magician and living a life full of magic. ... full review

Demystifying Magic, for me, gave life and soul to an entertaining show filled with unique magic effects and mind-bending, head-scratching, "what the hell?" moments. I don't recall ever seeing a magic show with such a fresh presentation, a real, believable story that also includes a "love of my life" narrative that is quite lovely. I enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend it!... full review

This is an interesting concept- combination bioplay and magic show. It tells the story of a magician's life by showing performances from various stages in his career. It is a credit to the writing that I thought the character portrayed was a real person (though I also figured a fake life would be more eventful). The actor is fairly successful at portraying a wide age range, but really excels with beautiful renditions of some classic magic effects (and a few I'd not seen). full review

Great story told with magic. Gebert takes the audience through a magicians rise and fall while awing you with feats of magic and mentalism.... full review

Do it again, please! For me, this is the best way to see magic; weaving and popping up through the fabric of a compelling story by an experienced actor. Demystifying Magic was equal parts story, magic, and social commentary. I didn't stop smiling from the first to last of it. Bob ever so gently and expertly draws the audience in with the story and magic. And despite the fact that he's the only one we see, there are other characters that are present through Bob's words and interactions. I liked this so much that I wish you would do it again, Bob. ... full review
