George Steeves puts it all out there. This is an amazing trip through the life of someone with Aspurger's. I was both entertained and educated and I really recommend you see this show. ... full review

George is very charismatic and has a great sense of humor, and the story he tells is full of joy and a fight for a good cause, and he pours his heart and soul into the production and really makes me want to root for him in any situation.... full review

I found this show to be very informative and affecting. George is very open and candid about his life and extremely brave to reveal the level of personal feelings and experiences he does--and there is a good balance between comedic and serious moments. While I do not have Asperger's myself, as someone with a background involving a lot of social awkwardness, bullying, and other trauma, there were still a lot of things I could personally relate to a good deal. I highly recommend it!... full review

This is a show that needs to be seen! It is honest, brave and beautifully told! Not only can he act, but George can sing! The end was so emotional for me. I am so inspired by George's story. Bravo George!!... full review
BROOKE BAUMER certified reviewer June 25, 2017
I'm the mother of a 9-year-old girl with autism. Learning her diagnosis and all of the years of therapies hasn't been easy. I still struggle to understand things from her standpoint. But in Magic 8 Ball, George Steeves took me on a journey into my daughter's shoes and what it's like to live in her world. The pain, the frustrations, the difficulties, the fears, the joys, the hopes. I cried so many times. I walked away from George's show enlightened ... hopeful of my daughter's future ... inspired to be a better mom ... and driven to help her to be all that she can be. George, thank you for giving me that immense gift in only a 1-hour performance. ... full review
