The Illusionist Show Review in Branson MO @ExploreBranson #ad

Review Rick Thomas the Illusionist

I was given tickets to see the Illusionist show to facilitate the writing of this review. I was not asked to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.

My kids were super excited to be vacationing in Branson, Mo. The excitement built even more when I told them we were going to see a magician, I mean an illusionist. Rick Thomas’s show did not disappoint those children. They were on the edge of their seat. Watching every move he made, wanting to be the child that was called up and got to help him on stage, but alas it wasn’t us. The adults enjoyed the show although there were a few things that seemed to put us off that the kids didn’t notice. I can’t really tell you what it was. Attitude maybe? Anyway the kids had a blast and the almost 2.5 hour show was for them. There was an intermission in the middle so everyone could go take a bathroom break and walk around. 

The time seemed to fly by. There were no complaints of ” when is this over”  or even “can we go home.”  My kids are 8, 11, and 17. The 8 year old said she thought the show was good and she loved when he (Rick) made his assistant (Tara) fly.   The 11 year old said he’s his 3rd favorite Illusionist in the world. The 17 year old had little to say. He enjoyed it but almost seems like he may be too cool to enjoy shows of this nature now. You know how those teens are. To sum up: The kids had a blast watching him do his magic and Tara do her disappearing and being cut in half act. She, of course, was also suspended in air with no table. There were some really cool tricks he did. He’s playing at the Andy Williams Theater nightly until September.  I think our show began at 8pm that night. If you go to Branson what shows are you likely to see? Country, Illusionist, or plays? Come back next week to read my last report on our very last show.

    It is great that this passed the “when will it be over” test. That is the best test of a good time for kids.

  28. Christina S says:

    I’ve never seen an Illusionist, but I’d love to! I’m sure there’s shows in Baltimore or Philly.
