Steve Price’s Magic on the Mersey
The Aloft, Liverpool
7th August 2021

I was lucky enough to go to the opening night of Steve Price’s one-man-show Magic on the Mersey on 7th August 2021. This is an intimate 75-minute parlour show in an elegant oak panelled room that can comfortably seat 60+. It is to be hoped that this is the start of a long run for Steve Price at The Aloft in Liverpool.
The show is jam packed with a variety of magical classics, often with a Steve Price ‘twist’ that will keep magicians guessing. Steve dresses immaculately and there is no doubt from the start that the audience is in the presence of a master magical entertainer. Whether he is performing manipulations or mental magic, the routines are all really well-crafted and performed with Steve’s characteristic warmth and humour.
The show is billed as ‘world class sleight-of-hand and laugh-out-loud comedy, in the luxurious surroundings of one of the smartest hotels in town’ and I would agree. I recommend this show without hesitation as excellent entertainment for lay and magician audiences alike.
