Re: “Faust's Egyptian Horror

More like a theater production than a gory dark haunted house. Kind of campy, very fun!

Re: “Carnival of Illusion: Magic, Mystery & Oooh La La!

What a fun way to spend an evening for a special outing! Tucson has so many hidden treasures and this is one of them. The show has huge entertainment value; bringing smart laughs, intriguing dance and of course MAGIC! Roland and Susan have fantastic chemistry and they demand your attention for the entire performance.
The small venue makes you feel like you are a part of the performance even if you are not chosen to be an audience participant for one of the many illusions presented throughout the night. We will go back again, and have not stopped telling our friends.

Re: “Carnival of Illusion: Magic, Mystery & Oooh La La!

My Husband, Daughter and I LOVE LOVE LOVE magic, and have had no more magical and heartwarming experience than when spending our evenings with the lovely Roland and Susan who truly embody the whimsical "Carnival of Illusion"! It feels as though you've entered a mansion filled with curious family and friends, only to be captivated and mystified by two charming souls who leave you with the feeling that you've just witnessed magical illusions performed by 2 old friends who spent years abroad, telling colorful stories about their intruiges, just before dazzling everyone with spectacular yet intimate magic that leaves everyone equal parts amazed, dazzled, mystified, and somehow, laughing all together as though we'd all gathered for a Holiday dinner followed by magic in the parlor hidden away from everyone but us. It's our 2nd happy year, and sure to be our Annual Magic Pilgrimage every Autumn! Please note, this is such a special experience, and it's so vital for the pleasure of the entire audience that only children who can sit quietly, patiently, and can appreciate the stories & magic of this performance should consider attending. There are very real moments when it's essential for the audience to "hear a pin drop", and interact with our magicians appropriately, that I would caution families to consider everyone's experience before considering attending with children. Thank you Roland and Susan for finally selling your fabulous card boxes, and most of all, your SHOT GLASSES! We ran right home and filled our glass with little glass beads & baubles, and proudly display our whimsical glass for all of our guests to see! Can't wait to see you again next year, dying to hear another intruiging story of a distant land where you've brought back to us yet more fabulous parlor magic! Everyone must try this very special experience, and make Carnival of Illusion your yearly pigrimage to Magic Mecca! Niki, Charlie and Athena

Re: “Carnival of Illusion: Magic, Mystery & Oooh La La!

A delightful evening! Grins on every face in the audience. A unique experience and such a pleasure to watch two charismatic performers who so obviously love what they're doing! My 9 year old son, who sometimes exhibits a teen-ager's cynicism, was fascinated! The look of wonder and excitement on his face throughout the show was priceless. The two stars were very gracious, greeting the guests afterwards and staying for pictures. They were also very attentive and patient with my son, answering his questions and encouraging his curiosity. They could not have been more kind! I would highly recommend this magical evening to young, old, and everyone in between!

Re: “Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid, Blaze

Wow Rialto... all those dollars I donated to the renovation of this venue and you choose not to offer us Juggalettes a little privacy by neglecting to include doors on the bathroom stalls. Seriously.

Aside from the over obsessive security and subhuman respect the show was incredible!

I am always amazed that so many people from evey walk of life can get together and call one another family and enjoy eachothers company so peacefully under one roof.

Re: “Wil Taylor

His work is consistently balanced and directed within, where the soul speaks. His simple well thought out paterns and use of abstract color allow symbolic gestures of spiritual depth with the omni present reality of closed lids, suggesting mortality and our shared imperfectly perfect human state.

Re: “Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

PERFECT for company events; it gets everyone involved, it is funny, interactive, gets people moving, laughing, keeps them guessing. We just had our company event here. We had 56 people in attendance and today, the Monday after the event I've heard more positive comments about it that I've ever had before. We had a terrific time. The show was slap-stick comedy at its best. Ross ("The Mostly Magnificent Steve") and the rest of the actors are hilarious (special Kudos to Trixie...OMG...where did this guy hide all this time!!!???!). The magic is great. The humor is tremendous. I found myself still laughing at some jokes 24 hours later!!! We will definitely do it again!

Re: “Tibetan Buddhist Practice Hour

Great practice hour, but please note that the contact phone number is 622-8460 (Dharmakirti), not the Ada Peirce McCormack phone number. Also check for other events and classes.

Re: “Wat Buddhametta and Tucson Buddhist Meditation Center

I just met the folks at this center and I am so impressed. Just very nice people who mean well and offer free services to people wanting to learn meditation or about Buddhism. Their Buddha room is really beautiful, too, and it's worth stopping in for a peek at it.
