Splendid and intense show! You really can't get closer to such a magic. And watch three different types of magic. Dr. Sonic is so elegant and B. Rodrigues' fingers are just amazing!!! Totally recommended!! Visited The Vaults on 2016-07-22

This was an excellent evening of some incredible close up magic. Each of the 3 magicians was so good it is difficult to explain just how impressive they were. There were tricks done which I had never seen before and magic happened right in front of me which I just cannot begin to work out how. On top of this the venue was great and its quirky décor really added to the overall night. I would definitely be back to see this and wouldn't hesitate to suggest it to friends.
