This is our fourth trip to San Francisco and we thought we had done everything there was to do. My brother and I decided to take our wives to this show as a surprise to try and mix things up a bit. I was pleasantly surprised. We arrived about an hour early, we were escorted to a waiting room where... More

If your looking for a fun unique experience this may be exactly what you're looking for. These people are some of the friendliest we've met in San Francisco. It is a small intimate operation which adds to the charm. There's more than just amazing magic. There's also mind bending examples of brain games and it's all done with hilarious skill.... More

We had a work group outing to Marrakech Magic Theater. Jay Alexander was amazing. The tricks did "only get better". I highly recommend this show. Jay is an outstanding performer.

We arrived early, met Jay Alexander, and were seated in the lounge to wait for the main show. While waiting, we were able to order food and drinks and enjoy Jay's small group entertainment. We were then escorted in groups to the theater and were thoroughly amazed, astonished, and impressed. The show was a treat and a delight and we... More

It was a spectacular show! Jay was very friendly, personable, and absolutely entertaining! The setting was intimate and warm. Jay kept everyone on the edge of their seats with one amazing tricks after the next. He kept us laughing and excited about what is to come next. It was indeed a night to remember.....it was magical!!

I booked tickets to see Jay Alexander at the Marrakech Magic Theater while organising our family trip. I was hoping to do something a little different, not your usual touristy thing, that all four of us would like. Well, this was definitely it! From the minute we walked in to the venue, with Jay himself personally greeting us, right 'til... More

I reviewed this show back in 2014. This guy is the real deal. I decided it would be fun to go on NYE this year and was heartbroken to hear that this is his last show. He is moving out of state! :-( (There is a new magician who will be taking his place at the theater in 2017.) If... More

Well there is a reason why it's so highly rates on Trip Advisor and that's because you get to experience something so up close. It may not come out as a fancy place from outside, but real magic is inside. We were lucky that Jay Alexander was playing this month and some of the stuff was way too good. Theater... More

I went to this show when I was in town for business. It was a quick walk from my hotel. The magician personally greets you and seats. My first impression was that it was a little creepy, but once the show started I was laughing and believing in "magic". I would bring my pre-teen and teenage children to this show,... More
