"An Amazing Show"
August, 2018
This was a great show. We've seen numerous magicians/illusionists in the past, but none were better than Rick Thomas. His rapport with the audience was great and his illusions amazing. My wife and I even got to be onstage as part of the show!

"Good show, but..."
June, 2018
The show was very good and I really enjoyed it. However, the dancers need to be covered up a little more and the dance moves less seductive. I was shocked at the very beginning when the dancers entered the stage. The illusions themselves were great. Just clean up the dancing.

Tip: The seating is very snug. Be prepared to rub elbows.

"Good show!"
June, 2018
This is my first show in Branson since I was child. Our group consisted of a 35, 29, and 10 year old females. We were seated on the front row which wasn’t the best location, and we were worried it wouldn’t live up to the reviews but we all three enjoyed the show. We laughed a lot and were shocked by several of the magic tricks because they were so good. I recommend seeing him at least once.

"DISAPPOINTING"
May, 2018
I found his dancers lewd and disgusting. Lots of talk and sweating and not that many illusions. didnt realize I would be watching seductive dance instead of magic tricks

Wonderful magic show. I do not have a clue how he did the things he did. Humor, wonderful dancers, Great Pyrenees that you could pet afterwards. A great evening. Better than David Copperfield in Vegas.

My wife and I enjoyed the show. The tricks were very good and we were definitely amazed. Rick was interesting to watch and his dancers were energetic. Recommend this show if you have time. Rick, his team, and his dogs were out in the Lobby after the show and it was nice to see them. The only thing I would recommend is to not seat people in the first row when the theater is not full because it is difficult to see the stage from there We moved back to the third row and the view was much better.

My wife and I went to the Rick Thomas magic show while visiting Branson. What a great show and performance! Apart from his amazing illusions and magic, he also has a comedic element which will bring a smile and joy to anyone attending. After the show he made himself and his crew available to meet fans and take pictures in the lobby of the theatre. I highly recommend this show to anyone visiting Branson and would definitely see him again.
