“John Tudor is a storyteller at heart and he’s among a small clan of conjurors who can tell a tale and use magic as the ‘punctuation.’ He combines his professional acting background and striking good looks into strong and dramatic magical pieces.”

“‘The Incredible John Tudor’ – an Inside Magic favorite – was at home on the Gala stage as he interacted with the kids in the front row, pulled a rabbit from a young volunteer’s hat, balanced a sheet of newspaper vertically on his nose, and generally worked the room. Tudor – as well documented in the past, is a consummate performer. Very smooth in execution and timing, very impressive, very clever and even sweet. What stands out, however, and sets Mr. Tudor apart from almost every magician we have ever seen: his thing is using magic to tell a story, or telling a story to present magic. Whichever the combination, it works. It was, in keeping with his Renaissance persona, as if he was holding court and we were welcomed guests. It played tremendously…he had us laughing to the point of hysterics.”

-Tim Quinlan, from Inside Magic

“His particular style uses magic for some very literate storytelling. “Magic is much deeper, more complex than people can imagine.” Tudor, whose deep green eyes and creative facial hair would allow him to go back in time and pass as a medieval royal court magician, said the same illusions that fooled audiences 1000 years ago still fool them today…”

“John Tudor’s “Magic Theatre” performance was one of the best magic shows that I have ever seen.  Tudor’s program included four additional top notch magicians whose performances blended well into the overall program.  John is the comsumate performer and held the varied program together with his wit, humor and stage presence.  The large audience thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening.”

-Booth Chilcutt, Sumter Opera House
