the audience and left them in awe as they applauded the wonderful and
unbelievable illusions that they had seen. They are not only masters of
illusion, they have mastered the art of quality theater production which is both
technically and aesthetically outstanding. The Spencers belong to the
upper echelons of their art!"
"The Spencers' show is not
simply a magical act, but it is a production and work of art! The time and
effort they have put into the design of their staging and the lighting reflects
a level of commitment to making their show more than just another magic act. It
is one of the best productions available to any performing arts venue. I cannot
help but give them the Highest marks!"

The show's pacing maximized the drama of each illusion and combined with the
lighting created exciting visual effects. Everyone enjoyed suspending belief for
a little while and just experiencing the magic."
