  • Great show to take your mind away from the worries of the world. Very well done
  • We live in Sydney and continue to be impressed by the range of activities and experiences available. When we found out about 'The Gentleman Magician' this appealed to us as something quite different. This is a classic magical show for adults held in the Sir Stamford, Circular Quay. We do a read up before attending the show, and we are impressed to hear the show is rated 2nd highest on trip advisor. And when you're second behind the Opera House in ranking, that's certainly testament to the quality of the show. The 'Gentleman Magician' is dubbed a magical soiree, with Bruce Glen, an actor, storyteller and magician hosting a meticulously planned show full of intrigue.
  • Lovely Magic overall. Bruce himself was extremely smooth, engaging and professional. The hostess was also lovely & friendly. 3 stars is not for the magic, but the presentation/experience overall versus the price. Advertising it with Gourmet Canapes was misleading - 2 snacks (1 dried out prawn dumpling, 1 risotto ball) and a tiny Christmas-styled mince (in February? Made you think of leftovers). Nowhere to put your glasses or your spoons (you should leave them out) but on the carpet on the floor. Room needed a repaint - paint was peeling on the ceiling and the room looked grubby and not maintained properly. You couldn't see well from the back, one of the tricks was performed off to the left on the floor, blocked by everyone else in front. The banter was repetitive and very tiresome after the first half an hour - it was putting me to sleep it was so repetitive and relentless. The second half of the show (the last 25 minutes) was SO much better - the relentless repetitive chatter stopped, and the tricks were the focus. The entry music was loud, and quite miscellaneous - from grating pop music, to classical, and easy listening to weird dance music. Something to actually suit the soiree atmosphere advertised would have added some class to the whole thing and been a lot more consistent. I wouldn't go back, and it was overpriced for a one off visit. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone either. If you ever get a chance to see James Galea - leagues ahead with the finesse and polish of the whole show and yet similar in pricing.
  • A very talented and charming performer, the Gentleman Magician presented a beguiling, intimate magic show, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. How does he do it? I recommend you go and see for yourself.
  • An evening of intrigue in a classic setting. I highly recommend Glen's magical show and his friendly accomplice, Catherine. Try to get there early so you sit up the front and you may see how the allusions were done. The canapes and champagne were superb.
