What I liked

Incredible, beautifully-done sleight of hand. The man’s hands are just amazing! And he has a charming, self-deprecating, easy to like stage presence. He’s very kind and gentle to the audience.

What I didn't like

I expected the “patter” to be a little more pointed or interesting, but his low key approach certainly works.

My overall impression

This is high quality magic. Even standing on stage, as a volunteer, watching intently, I had no idea how he did what he did.

In Conclusion:

They have it all: cash, charm, and connections. Playing by different rules. So when a boy is found dead and two more stand to hang, justice is under the microscope and we have to ask: how did we get here, where are we going and do we have a choice?

WHAT I NEVER TOLD YOU

Sometimes love becomes transparent, but is it too late? Through the course of one evening, Nick and Alysha ultimately remind themselves how deep their love is. A knock on the door, however, brings the world crashing down around them.
