Best Magic Shows (in America) 2023!
Of course you've heard of the biggest magicians and illusionists of our time who perform with those big LAS VEGAS Illusion shows or NEW YORK CITY Magic Shows, but there's more to magic than the handful of performers that have seven (or eight!?!?!) figure marketing budgets. Today, you can see magic and illusions shows in almost every part of the United States that are fabulous and a REAL TREAT for a special evening out. The best way to find these gems near you is to ask working magicians where their favorite shows are located... and that's exactly what we've done for you. So, if you search for "magic shows near me", we're sharing our list of the Top Magic Shows in the United States (alphabetical by state)....

7001 Franklin Ave, Hollywood

The Magic Castle is a private club for magicians and magic enthusiasts with multiple magical performances every night. This is the mecca for magicians in the United States and was the home to legendary in-house magicians in the '60s. Although this may be the most difficult theater to enter on this list if you don't know a magician, one secret is to contact the performers for the evening you want to visit and request a guest pass. Yes, you'll have to pay for parking, door entry, and dinner, but it's a beautiful Victorian mansion with expensive drinks, a great view, and oh yeah, lots of magic.
