Beautiful venue with a wonderfully elegant man in Bruce. It was a lovely evening with amazing magic.
I would highly recommend for anyone to attend one of Bruce's shows for a fun and classy night on the town.

Perfectly located at the Sir Stamford Hotel this show was such a lovely and unusual thing to do.
Starting with Champagne and canapes, we were treated to a charming show of stories, magic and lots of laughs too.
Every trick was woven into a fabulous narrative by Bruce, the Gentleman magician, with a little Sydney history thrown in too. Magical and old worldy, a great night that I highly recommend.

Tip: Book a table in the whisky bar after the show dinner and drinks

A wonderful evening of magic delivered by this aptly self titled Gentleman Magician.
Bruce entertains with wit, story telling, and the wonders of magic. His show took us ‘away from the everyday’.
If you’re looking for a night out at a show that avoids the queues and the hustle and bustle of seating, with the entertainer on a stage in the distance, give this one a go.

'The Gentleman Magician', variously described in the advertising literature as a 'captivating, entrancing magical soiree' was a huge disappointment. Upon our arrival at the hotel my group of 20 retirement village residents were required to navigate the labyrinth of below stairs laundry/food preparation areas since the hotel lift was inoperative and the only alternative to the stairs was to walk around the side of the hotel in icy outdoor temperatures. We were then directed to a somewhat tired and gloomy room where the light fittings were barely attached to the walls-no evidence of the splendid chandeliers featured in the advertisements. We sat in rows to receive two savoury and one sweet canapes and a glass of 'champagne'. No atmosphere whatsoever. The show itself was as tired as the decor.
The gentleman magician was elegant and courteous but his magic fell well short of baffling wonderment indeed, some of his tricks went awry. As we retraced our way through the laundry labyrinth many of us questioned the $95 price tag for tickets for the show. Personally, I would have preferred to remain in the comfort of my own home enjoying a Netflix night!

The show we saw in May 2021 was presented in the Old Ritz Carleton, now named "The Sir Stamford" in a downstairs room. Some other guests had problems with the stairs. This was not the splendid room in the publicity photographs.
Somehow the whole thing was disappointing and didn't live up to its publicity. The promised canapes (3) and the glass of bubbly was served to us sitting in our seats before the show began.
Bruce has a good chatter and the magic, though dated, was almost OK, but for a member of of any Magic Circle to fluff two "forces" in a 2 hour performance is unforgivable. This happened during his presentation to us.
His involvement with two of the members of the audience was well handled.
It bore the hallmarks of a Show which has been going for a very long time and now needs a rethink and revival about what it is actually presenting.
It is poor value for the admission price in its present form.
It should stop advertising that it is number 2 on the Trip advisor "Shows and concerts" as it is actually 11 or 28 depending on where you look on the trip advisor website.
We were underwhelmed and disappointed by our evenings entertainment.

We booked for the experience of a magic show with Bubbly and canapés beforehand. The event was held in a pokey room down a flight of stairs. Seating was in rows of chairs. Ambience was non existent. Canapés consisted of one prawn dumpling served on a spoon with soy sauce; one pizza , slightly larger than a 50 cent coin and one small tart. The Gentleman (which indeed he is) magician certainly had the patter but the show was underwhelming. The rope trick (using cords) is clever but dated. A couple of tricks were fairly obvious but another couple or so were indeed baffling. I have seen better magicians and tricks at a party for young children. Wish we had gone out for a meal instead. It would have been cheaper than this overpriced show.

Bruce was a definitely a gentleman and a very kind man. The magic however was extremely old and not at all outstanding or baffling. He talked far far too much and did too little. No trick left you amazed or bewildered. For $95, I would want to be far more entertained and gobsmacked. He started with the equal length rope trick which has been around since Botany Bay was discovered ...one trick didn't work and another was faulty though he was quick enough to glaze over the mistake. I really think your money would be spent far better on a boat cruise or some other activity. I do not say this unkindly, but as one who cannot afford to throw or spend $190 on a night that is so ordinary. I honestly believe $20 for this hour would have been a fair price.

This is the first time I have received such a negative review and I am so sorry you did not enjoy your experience. As with all performing arts reactions can vary considerably - after all, we are all different with different expectations. Though your review differs greatly from almost all the others I have received I absolutely respect your right to your opinion. I wish you well.

This evening was a wonderful gift to my husband. We decided not to read up about it prior to going so we could enjoy the evening without expectations.
We we had a wonderful evening full of ‘how?’ and ‘what just happened’ and more how, how and how.

We were greeted with a glass of ‘bubbles’ and lovely canapés while mingling with other guest.

Then we were entertained in an intimate setting. We could see and hear everything very well. It was a truely enjoyable and magically evening.

Well this was a surprise. The show has magic but I think the real magic is watching a gentleman present a show with the quality of past performers. I thoroughly enjoyed this show. Interestingly a young person seated beside me was in awe of the showmanship of our host. Bruce was a joy to listen to and his show will give you a taste of a bygone era. Amazing.

As a group of 8 we were part of the Gentleman Magician soiree as a celebration for my husband's 60th Birthday. What a delight! We were made very welcome in this grand historic hotel, that had a beautiful wood fire burning in the foyer. Tasty canapes were served before finding ourselves fascinated by the Gentleman Magician, who did not disappoint. It was wonderful to be entertained by a person (not a screen) who could hold your interest and concentration, a skill, as he explains, passed on from the magicians of history, who in the past were sought after for soirees in stately homes. There are no childish gimics- it was wonderful listening to and watching the professional Mr Glen, always amazed! We had the pre-opera 2 course meal in the Governor's Room, part of the dining room at the Sir Stamford at 5.30 pm, followed by 7.00 pm canapes upstairs before 7.30 show and moved afterwards to The Highlander Bar for a chat with Mr Glen. A truely different and memorable evening, we highly recommend.
