An evening of wonder delivers a different kind of magic

The Illusionists London review by Paul Heath, November 2015
Kevin James is also impressive as The Inventor, who manages to thrill with larger, slightly darker illusions, while also delivering a sweet close-up set with a younger member of the audience in the second act; a definite stand-out.
If one was to go into The Illusionists expecting big epic, massively budgeted magic tricks that fill the stage throughout then you may come away disappointed. There are some moments like that, mostly weighted towards the opening number, but this is a show that is very much for the audience to be involved in – smaller, more intimate tricks with a running humour and constant charm.
To sum up our The Illusionists Londo review – it will blow your mind, it will have you laughing in the aisles and it will definitely have your kids running to the stage to be involved in the wonder. Most of all, The Illusionists will entertain you massively throughout. A magical treat for the festive season.
