BeLIEve is a magic show by the illusionist and escape artist, Criss Angel. He had a show, MindFreak, for many seasons and most recently, he has his show, BeLIEve. Matt, Robin (my mom-in-law), and I have been big Criss Angel fans for years. I even had the pleasure of seeing this show in 2009 when I came with a college trip. Since that ’09 show, I’ve truly believed in Criss Angel’s talents as both an illusionist and as a magician. Yes, magic is real (Hogwarts could be a real place, but us muggles just don’t know!). Robin’s had a crush on Criss for many a year now, so it only made sense that we sit front-row-center for the big show.
It was well worth it. Criss Angel touched our hands, and he even took a selfie with Robin. I’m pretty sure she can die a happy woman now. Whether you BeLIEve or not, Criss Angel is a wicked talented performer who is a genuinely good guy and understands he’d be nothing without his fans. I still believe I saw him disappear off the stage and slice a woman in 2 half. This dude is for realz (intentional use of ‘z’).
This had to be its own post for the pictures alone. Priceless.
At Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, Robin got a little frisky with Criss Angel just hours before the show.
At the end of the show, Criss let us take our phones out for some pictures. I managed to snap this terrible picture of myself.
Then this happened:
That’s Robin, my awesome mother-in-law taking a selfie with Criss Angel. The only selfie he took with anyone that night. Best. Night. Ever.
