One thing your San Francisco real estate book will not fill you in on is all the local hot spots that are considered hidden gems in the city. The Marrakech Magic Theater is one of those places that may not get a ton of publicity, but it packs a full house all the time! The shows are small, intimate, a ton of fun and appropriate for the entire family.
Location and Hours
Marrakech Magic Theater
419 O’Farrell Street
San Francisco, CA 94102
Hours at the venue vary from time to time; however, traditionally there are shows at:
Thursday – 6:30 and 9:30
Friday – 6:30 and 9:30
Saturday – 6:30 and 9:30
Sunday – 6:30
The doors are open one hour prior to the show, and it is recommended to come a little early. This gives you an opportunity to find your seat, enjoy a cocktail from their full bar, take in a little pre-show entertainment and meet Peter Morrison, who is the magician and owner. Delicious appetizers are available as well.
The show sells out every night, so although you can risk it and try to purchase tickets early at the door, it is recommended to preorder them online on their website.
What Makes the Show Special?
Most people looking at San Francisco real estate are told of the larger theaters, museums, galleries and nightclubs in the city. The Marrakech Magic Theater offers a different type of experience. There are only 42 guests permitted in every show, so it really offers a personal experience. Considering the show has perfect Yelp reviews, it is safe to say it is definitely something pretty special.
Peter, the magician, visits every table of the dark, underground, candlelit lounge. Therefore, there is not a bad seat in the house. He does a lot of “old-school” tricks with corny props, but you can’t help but love them. He is extremely gifted, and has a way of incorporating what he learned about you before the show right into his act. His jaw-dropping illusions will have you amazed and entertained. You will experience everything from psychic acts to teleportation; this is the real deal!
About Peter Morrison
Since the Marrakech Magic Theater opened its doors in 2010, this has been a recommended show to attend for one reason only; Peter Morrison. He started his life as an entertainer, literally at 5-years-old, performing magic acts in his backyard in Oakland. In 1979, he had his first paid event, headlining for a holiday Christmas party at the Lafayette Rotary Club.
Since that time, Morrison has performed well over 5,000 shows with nothing but positive reviews. He absolutely loves to entertain. He is more than just a magician. He is able to tailor his services to every audience to exceed expectations.
His understanding of event planning comes from working in management at a Nordstrom in the local area. His knowledge of backdrops, lighting and sound is what sets him apart from the local entertainers. He has a fantastic presence whether he is on stage or at a table in a crowd. So, although you will have a good time at recommended venues in your San Francisco real estate book, you will have an unforgettable experience at the Marrakech Magic Theater.
