ELLE ZAZIE uncertified reviewer June 13, 2011
Smoke & Mirrors is laugh out loud funny, but also bittersweet. Albie Selznick weaves wry and introspective storytelling with amazing physical feats and magic (you'll be wondering "How did he do that?" over and over)! Go spend an hour w/this man and his bunny!... full review
VICTORIA FLORES uncertified reviewer June 10, 2011
Albie is a very talented performer. His one-man one-bunny show is sad, sweaty, and still fun all at the same time. Original music by Johnnie Gee is delightful.... full review
RICHARD GLEASON uncertified reviewer June 12, 2011
This show is what theatre is all about - taking your impressions of significant events in life and putting them out there for all to see. Selznick is a gifted storyteller and enthusiastic performer who brings those stories into vivid relief. Funny and irreverent, it made for a very entertaining night of theatre. ... full review

You grow up with someone for your entire life and in 1.5 hours you learn things about them you never knew. Albie did the magic shows for my birthday parties 40 years ago! Little did I know the heartfelt reason behind his magic. Albie has a deep and meaningful way of telling his stories. Every moment is filled with eloquence, spirit and magic! He brings the past right to you and makes you feel as if you were right there with him. Kudos! ... full review
JULIET LANDAU uncertified reviewer June 11, 2011
Albie is wonderful in Smoke and Mirrors. He combines magic and storytelling into a seamless tale that is fun, touching, entertaining and inventive. Bettina Zacar has crafted the evening into a tight, twisting, funny... or rather bunny... adventure. :)... full review

I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish. It encompasses all of the best elements of a live performance. Comedy, drama & and magic (which I'm still trying to figure out. :-) As an audience member I felt like I was on the journey with him. Several laugh out loud moments.... full review

5 Stars. Albie delivers the goods. How often do you get to look into the heart of a Magician? You do, in this fast paced entertainment. How does he do it? Can you keep a secret? Go and find out.... full review
PARIS PERRAULT uncertified reviewer June 14, 2011
Albie's strories in Smoke and Mirrors are hilarious, moving, captivating, and incredibly human. He is an engaging and brave performer/storyteller that shows us that under the magic we all perform daily, we sometimes quietly find profound moments of empathy (even when we're not sure what to say). The magic was very fun and cool as well and Albie impresses with his use of the space, enthusiastic physicality, and finds every excuse to involve his audience. This is a must-see. ... full review
ART SMITH uncertified reviewer June 14, 2011
Albie is an engaging, attention-grabbing, talented storyteller! His one man show gracefully combines his magic skills and profound true stories. His animated personality brings to life stories from his life and you can see whats physically happening as well as emotionally. Props to Albie for putting so much heart into his show, you'll come out wanting more!... full review
