Whenever we are in Galena, we stop for a show with P.T. Murphy. P.T. is a skilled magician as well as a charming host and we have enjoyed getting to know him over the last few visits. The show is always fun, engaging and a charming part of Galena. We will be back!

If you're heading to Galeana Illinois you must find time to see P.T. Murphy's magic show. The venue is small which lends itself to great comical interactions with the audience and the icing on the cake is great up close magic. You'll leave asking yourself "how did he do that?"

My girlfriend and I had such a great time at the show. Extremely funny, and the magic was amazing. Such a nice person too. I was brought up to assist for a portion of the show, and I was made to feel comfortable and a fun part of the show. Not an embarrassing experience at all. Highly recommended!
