Steve Simmons of the Beverly Hills Courier stopped by to see the show over the holiday.

"Magician Ivan Amodei has been packing them in at the Beverly Wilshire. So, to mark his one-year anniversary of sold-out shows, L.A.'s No. 1 magician has added three New Year's Eve shows at 6, 8 and 10 p.m. in the hotel’s historic Le Grand Trianon Theater.

His usual weekend shows are in his intimate 65-seat suite and the show is even labeled “Intimate Illusions — A Magical & Musical Experience.” With Amodei’s friendly, never stuffy or formal manner, the evening’s effect is as if a magician friend has invited you over to show you his latest tricks. If your friend is a world-class magician.
