Penn & Teller try new tricks on Broadway-USA TODAY‎
Magic, Jillette admits, doesn't have quite the same profile. "It's not music, it's not comedy. And I'm fine with that; I love the fringes of show business. I'm also fine with magic being considered with a great deal of disrespect. Children get into it at around 12...and mostly, they move on. But some keep thinking about it, about how we ascertain truth and decide what's real. That's all it takes."..

Magician seeks to amaze the whole family-Journal Gazette and Times-Courier‎
Pick a card, any card, and what the magician does next is often referred to as a magic trick. But Andrew Anderson isn't a huge fan of the word "trick." It's not about tricking people, he said. "When I'm learning something, developing a new routine, I'm thinking of terms of not how can I fool (the audience) and make them look silly, or make them feel uneasy, but how can I make a sense of wonderment," he said....

Broadway Review: 'Penn & Teller on Broadway'-Variety

By assuring us that all live animals used in the show are treated with “compassion, dignity and respect,” they elicit twinges of guilt in us for not having given a thought to the wellbeing of the bunny or the cow or any other animal paraded on stage. And when Penn rages about “immoral” magicians who perform dangerous tricks for dramatic effect, he’s slyly laughing at us for watching his scary “Nail Gun” act and secretly wondering if this might be the night when this particular dangerous trick would turn deadly....
