“Christian Cagigal, with The Collection, has presented the magic show I dreamed about as a youngster. It is a fantasy come true.”


“Even if you don’t believe in magic, watching The Collection you can’t help but believe, if only for a moment -- or at least to want to.”

S.F. Weekly


“To call these forays 'magic shows' doesn’t quite describe the charged blend of myth and mind-!@#$ that Cagigal brings to his art...he managed to open a gaping portal in the imaginations and willingly suspended disbelief of his oddience the unsettling effects of which lasted long beyond the night of the show. And if that’s not magic, I don’t know what it is.” 

San Francisco Bay Guardian                                                                                   



“Christian Cagigal doesn't try to wow his audiences with sleight-of-hand tomfoolery or glittery Vegas-style pyrotechnics. His is a brand of magic full of complex theatrical gambits and heavily dependent on narrative and audience interaction.”

SF Chronicle 


“Cagigal’s shows are a far cry from office party performers and Vegas style showmanship.”

Turnstyle News
