Vegas Must-see?

Where local magicians eat, meet, and greet.

Will be spending a week in Vegas in the summer months, and my wife and son will be along (Yes! I wouldn't have it any other way!). I am sure that they will only endure one magic show for us to see, so I am hoping for your suggestions here.

If your family sees Mac, they will probably let you take them to another. Classic Magic -- Lance. Adults only - P&T.

Thanks, Dustin! I have really enjoyed your recent articles in GENII, and your coverage of the Magician TV series was superb. What's the status on the campaign to get it released on DVD?

If Copperfield is in Vegas when you're there, and they have not seen him before, then see his show at the MGM Grand.
Next choice is Lance--it's a great classical magic show.
Next choice is Mac King, and I put Mac third ONLY because it's more comedy and less magic.
Rick Thomas does a great show (forgot which hotel he's at now) and the price is right.
If you're budget oriented, then you could buy tickets for Mac AND Rick Thomas for less than the price of tickets for Lance. Also, you could sell Mac's show to your family as a comedy show rather than a magic show.

Rick Thomas ($19.95-$24.95) has moved his show over to the Stardust Hotel...And Dirk Arthur($24.95) filled the void left by Rick at the Tropicana. For even more comedy oriented Magic, you could try Amazing Johnathan ($45-$55), now at the Sahara or Penn & Teller(82.50)at the Rio.

Just saw the World's Greatest Magic show at the Greek Isles and it rocked ... also saw P & T at the Rio and I enjoyed the show a lot ... more than just magic ... juggling, fire-eating and with a spectacular ending ... this show is a must see for anyone interested in seeing two masters of presentation, (and see Penn play a killer bass while Teller plays the vibes ...)
