    Thank you Derek.

    Yours,

    A Fraud

  • Extraordinary by 10

    Please go in without reading up on what you are about to see. Turn off your devices, make sure you won't be interrupted, and just experience it. If your partner/housemate/friend is a chatty show watcher, watch it alone.

    It's hard to write a review that doesn't tell you anything, but I think it's quite important not to know what to expect. It can be a deeply moving experience.

  • Emotional Arr by 10

    "...and knowing you won't believe me,that's the only reasonI'm going to tell you the truth"

    Derek DelGaudio has created something truly in & of itself...

    It's conceptual, it's emotional, and it's wonderful.

    Turn off the phone, turn off the lights, experience it and then tell me...

    "What have you become?"

  • Best "Magic" show ever. by 10

    First of all the cover image of the video is of my wife and me when we saw this in NYC. We loved the show live and think the movie has found a way to capture the essence of the live performance. My wife had said it best this is her review:

    It really is a raw and powerful show. I don't think anyone can watch this show and not be affected by it. So many of the people in the audience were deeply moved, and some were brought to tears. Derek is deliberate in his presentation, he is piercing in his gaze, he uses silence as well as words, and when he does speak, you are hanging on every word. Oh, and he's incredibly talented too. I chose I AM a dreamer. Edmund chose I AM a trickster, but seeing what some people chose for themselves was at times beautiful, funny, and incredibly sad. Fantastic show. 522 shows.
