ReviewsEveryone Loves Magic!

"Magic's Theater offers a great escape from the typical Austin attraction. The close up shows seat up to 12 and are great for smaller groups. Their Saturday night stage show offers the full gamut of sawing people in half, levitating bodies, and heavy machinery appearing out of thin air. They are consistently ranked in our Top 10 Things to do in Austin list."

"I took my family to see this wonderful show. This is great for both kids and adults. There was sleight of hand tricks, levitation and illusions that kept you scratching your head and asking..."How did he do that?" My hats off to John Magic and his lovely wife for a fun filled night that I won't soon forget. I felt like a little kid again filled with wonder and curiosity!"

"Such a cool hidden gem in Dripping Springs. Extremely intricate design with an amazing museum! John was very knowledgeable about the history of magic and his close up performance was wonderful! Definitely will be back to check out the Saturday show."

"I have so much respect for the magician and his staff, they put on a great show. I'm still trying to figure out how he did almost all the magic performances he did. I traveled 3 hours from Dallas and my first stop was his magic show and it was well worth it. Went on a Saturday night, this show is a must see for everyone."

"John & family put in an amazing show. The audience was full of people ranging from age 3-73 and we were all mesmerized! Such a great surprise venue tucked away in Dripping Springs! The museum is great, too, so be sure to arrive a little early to peruse!"

"We went to the Saturday night stage show and were thoroughly entertained! The show is great for all ages and showcases tricks from different categories of magic (illusion, sleight of hand, etc.). We also got a taste of some up-close magic in the lobby by an apprentice. Definitely will be back for the Friday night up-close show with the magician!"

"What a great place to go. The owners are the nicest couple and his magic show was up close and amazing! They have an incredible collection of historic magic items to enjoy before and after the show. Great date night or group night out."
