'Glitches in Reality' was such a fantastic treat! Simon Coronel brought the "impossible" to life in such an entertaining and fascinating manner, even going so far as to let the audience in on the magic. Kudos to Coronel and director Jon Armstrong for crafting an hour of magic and fun! Don't miss this wonderful performance!... full review

Laughter and amazement! This show is honest with you and with itself in the most frustrating way-- It knows you're being fooled, you know you're being fooled, but YOURE STILL FOOLED. Impossibly wonderful. ... full review

Simon is one of my most favorite people to watch perform. His magic is world class (literally, he's won international awards). No matter how many times I see the tricks, I can't believe my eyes. He's also an amazing showman. He weaves stories, understanding, perspective, humor, and humility throughout the performance. He strives not to trick his audience, but to use illusion to create a temporary pause on reality. It's like being a kid again when maybe just maybe around that corner IS a door that leads to Narnia, or maybe if this IS a magical ring. It's such a joy and a gift to have the awe and wonder back, if only for an hour. ... full review

What a terrific show! Simon Coronel is fun, witty, urbane, incredibly impressive - and very generous. This was a joyful entr'act between new writing, classical reinterpretations, solo shows and Fringe Festivities! I can't imagine anyone of any age being anything but overjoyed that they experienced some Glitches in Reality! ... full review

Wonderful show! I've seen Simon every year he's been at Fringe and his shows are always a delight. This year's offering is a trip through illusion and reality, utilizing sleight of hand and masterful theatricality to entertain and entrance. I highly recommend it!... full review

According to Simon, the world is divided into people who scoff at magic tricks, people who gasp in wonder, and people who just don’t care. My skeptical husband kept trying to tell me how this or that illusion was 'done' while credulous me just gasped at the magic of it all. What an affable chap Simon is, patiently explaining to his eager audience how he does each ‘trick’ then leaving us all baffled as he does it. Such fun. A $5 bill turns into a 50 in front of our eyes. His small Soy Sauce bottle is upstaged by an audience members large one! He pops a Rubik’s Cube into his mouth and chews it into place. My favorite illusion was when he took story suggestions from the audience and, engaging the guy behind us, had him draw from a locked box a ... full review
