"Joshua Lozoff has the same excitement with each performance as if it is the first time he's done the trick. He really relates to the audience and looks like he's having as much fun as we are. We had some scheduling concerns with the number of guests, and he was gracious enough to do two shows so we could split the audience and give everyone a chance to see the magic."
