Each year, a group of Bay Area friends heads to SF for a weekend getaway. After reading wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to spend Saturday night with magician Peter Morrison at the Marrakech Magic Theater. We all pronounced it one of our best choices yet!
From the moment you descend the stairs into the Moroccan themed lounge, you feel you're in for something unique. Our friendly hostess took our drink and appetizer order (yummy hummus and fresh bread) and, a few moments later, Peter was introducing himself to each group and giving us a taste of his engaging style of magic. Yes, he did fabulous card tricks that whetted our appetite for more, but he also, quite comfortably, got to know his audience - before the show even started.
Once he led us into the small, intimate theater, these introductory moments payed off tenfold as he seamlessly wove members of the audience into his show. He also, quite masterfully, taught us a bit about the history of magic in San Francisco. His passion for what he does is genuine and contagious. The magic he performs is classic and traditional, but nonetheless completely entertaining. My jaw was constantly needing to be propped back up and my head was often shaking as in "HOW DID HE DO THAT!!??"
As our group walked back to our hotel, and later on as we enjoyed a night cap, we continued to talk about how polished and professional the show was, what an engaging host and mesmerizing magician Peter Morrison was and what a perfect night out in San Francisco we just had!
