What I liked

Siegfried Tieber is a magician who is not interested in showing you tricks… it seems he is more interested in showing you how your own mind can play tricks on itself. He leads the audience through multiple scenarios where free choices and random decisions line up to reveal fascinating and sometimes inspiring results.
It’s clever. It’s fun. It’s truly thought provoking, as well.
The overall effect is to have the audience walk away pondering how even the most simple decisions we make in each day’s journey can possibly affect our own outcome as well as those around us.

What I didn't like

The sense of mystery could have been increased with better lighting. The venue’s lighting was harsh and intense which clashed with Tieber’s gentle, sly manner.

My overall impression

The show is deceptively simple, fascinating and thought-provoking and quite a joy to experience.
