I saw the Steven Best show and it was good. It is also a much smaller theater so you are much closer to the action.

Dirk Arthur put on a good show as well, and Lance was classic.

For a good non-magic show, try V The Ultimate Variety Show. There are some good eating places near that show as well.

For magic shows here in Vegas, here's what I recommend checking out--

Penn & Teller - very original and unique magic, and thought provoking
Lance Burton - a classic!
Nathan Burton - very high energy, funny, and just a whole lot of fun
Steve Wyrick - some cool illusions you don't often see in a very intimate venue
Criss Angel Believe - one bizarre and twisted show, sit close to the stage

I recommend avoiding Dirk Arthur, but if you want to see "as much magic as humanly possible" you'll want to check out that show as well.

Steve Wyricks theatre was the coolest looking one as an entrance. Made me want to go and see the show but not enough time. Lance is great as well as Mac King. Two great performers.

If you want to go and see a Cirque show I highly recommend KA. This is a great show. don't sit two close to the stage cause there is SOOO much going on in that theater you will miss it all.

Not much magic in his show, but you might consider seeing Amazing Jonathan.

My 2 cents I would see:
Nathan Burton( he's going to be on America's Got Talent this year!)
David Copperfield
The Dymonds
Steve Dacri...One of the best close-up guys working the strip!!!!
Mac King
Dirk Arthur
On a side note its really awesome to have the wisdom of Ray in this wild community of magicians!!!
If you ever have a chance to see a master at work I would see Ray hands down to all!!!

Nathan Burton show is much better live than the short clips on TV>......
This guy really moves quick and keeps the magic up beat and modern..

I'm surprised more Magicians don't take the time to notice this show.

Flamingo Hilton, Afternoon show.

Just my take on Vegas Magic.

Check out my boy Todd Paul. He's headlining at Hooters last time I checked, and I won't be performing in Vegas until the summer. I did a spot at the Nathan Burton show and I'll tell you that it's a good show. But magicians will probably hate it. If your looking for magic or if your looking for magical entertainment... well, you need to make up your mind. Because a lot of magicians don't know the difference.

You have to see Cashetta - this is on my list for the end of February when I am back in LV. I was miffed we didn't have time to see Cashetta last time.

We did manage to see Lance Burton and Copperfield and both were outstanding. Copperfield's show seemed more intimate, like amongst friends, but maybe that was because we were front row right next to the stage.
In both cases the shows were full and the audience's reactions were enthusiastic. One poor girl got mobbed outside the theatre after "13", which I found a bit unfair.

We also got to see "KA" which fo a non-magic show is mighty magical! Highly recommended (my only previous live experience of Cirque du Soleil had been at the London Albert Hall and I was etxremely disappointed with that :-( )
Yours Magically,
Lee Alex

I was in Vegas in middle of November and saw Lance. Was enjoyable. They people I was with liked it. The bad news: it was pretty empty (I suspect the economy and a weekday). Would see him again if I had the chance.

Since I was not out there for magic I did not get to see anyone else (even though I had a free Mac King ticket and a greatly reduced ticket for Nathan Burton).

I have to agree with Ray and say to see as many shows as you can, no matter how good or bad.

I went years ago on exactly the same mission as you. I was in Vegas for 5 nights and saw 9 shows. 2 a night on 4 of the nights - early and late shows. Lots of dashing around to squeeze them all in.

I saw everything from Siegfried & Roy and Copperfield right down to a $15 show in a tiny back room of a bar. You can always learn from any performer, be they good or bad. It can help you see what works & what doesn't; what makes people laugh and what makes them gasp; what pulls applause and what gets you tutting and sighing in shame.

It can show you many different ways of doing the same effect and also give you ideas on what could work for you.

Take some of the recommendations on here and then take a gamble and book some completely random unknown shows - you'll learn something from all of them.

Have a great time. I know I did.
