We went to the Marrakech Magic Theatre on New Year's Eve 2011 with our 2 boys (aged 12 and 14). As recommended we got there a little early to have a pre-show drink and tapas - delicious and the waiting staff very personable! Peter came in charmed and amazed everyone 'group by group' and (with hindsight) he was allocating our places in his performance. The actual show was really clever and Peter is hilarious and engages with as many of the audience as possible ... it's very interactive and you'll love it ... so do it!

My 14 year old daughter and I loved this show. Be sure to get to the theater an hour before the show. Mr. Morrison personally greets you and entertains you with tricks and basically remembers who came first and seats everyone personally in basically first come order. So if you're there early u have a greater chance of being seated in the front. He involves most of the audience in the show which is fun. He does a mixture of great card tricks, rings, balls, strings, even an escape trick. The ambiance of the Marrakech theater was also wonderful and added to the evening. You could order drinks and appetizers or dessert before the show. We had hummus and warm bread. Really fun Friday evening.

We had a wonderful time at the Marrakech theatre. We arrived about 30 minutes before the show started. Peter introduced himself to us as we enjoyed our drinks. He then performed card trick for us personally.

Afterwards he moved us into the small theatre it seems like it fits about 40 people. He performed his show involving many members of the audience. The show was excellent, leaving everyone guessing.

A great show. Personable magican. Small venue. He asks you there an hour ealy to order snacks/drinks from the restaurant he shares space with - it cut down on our viewing the Chinese New Year Parade, so I am giving it 4 stars for that reason only. Another pleasant evening spent with up close magic.
