Rated a perfect five stars on both Yelp and Trip Advisor, The Magic Duel is a comedic magic show hosted by top magicians Mark Phillips and Brian Curry held at the Mayflower Hotel. The show focuses on a “magical duel” between the two magicians who are simultaneously competing against each other for the coveted evening award decided upon by the audience. The sleight-of-hand battle includes playing card tricks, rope tricks, and lots of audience participation from start to finish. The Magic Duel is the perfect date with friends, family, or your significant other that will leave you entertained and befuddled, wondering, “How did they do that?”
The Magic Duel is held Saturday evenings at multiple times, and the show runs for about 90 minutes with one 15-minute intermission. Tickets range in price from $50 to $70 and can be purchased online. Street parking can be tough, but there is a garage on Desales Street directly across from the Mayflower. Valet Parking at the Mayflower is also available.
