"Galena's #1 Attraction!" – from TripAdvisor in 2013 & 2014. Enjoy the illusions hosted by critically acclaimed magician P.T. Murphy. The setting for the mystery is P.T. Murphy's private 24-seat theatre located at 204 Hill St., just 39 steps west of Hill and Main Streets in the heart of historic downtown Galena, IL. P.T. Murphy believes in magic. It's his job.

P.T. is known for his personable style, mischievous sense of humor and sophisticated sleight of hand that the Chicago Reader called "An evening that shows magic to its best advantage, up close and personal!"
