Chicago Tribune- Highly Recommended

"...But a good shove on the washing machines at No. 5050 revealed a packed crowd behind the fake laundromat that is the Chicago Magic Lounge, an enterprise that has been doing very, very well since its bow in 2018. The weeknight buzz was for the vampish Lucy Darling - a Gilded Age character that is part Barbara Stanwyck, part Lady Gaga and part "Mad Men's" Joan Holloway."

Around The Town Chicago- Highly Recommended

"...For those of you who have ever been in a theater with a comedy on stage, where I was also there, you know I truly enjoy a good laugh. For those of you who enjoy watching magic and a comedy performance, there is a new show in town that will tickle both of those pleasure buttons. It is called "Indulgence with Lucy Darling", featuring the amazing Carisa Hendrix. The "Lucy" character is a special blend of stand-Up comic and master magician that is known pretty much everywhere and when it comes t comedy and magic is Award Winning who is also featured in the Guinness Book of World Records, but of greater importance, makes for a fun night out on "Hump Day" at a great venue that most people are not even aware of."

Chicagoland Theater Reviews- Highly Recommended

"...My show was called "Indulgence with Lucy Darling," Lucy being the name taken by magician-entertainer Carisa Hendrix. Most of the show is actually a stand-up comic turn with Lucy, a sexy lady wearing a mound of stylized red hair, working the audience. For much of the hour, there was more stand-up comedy than magic. But the audience seemed to love the lady's repartee and her interaction with individual spectators, several of whom treated her attentions as an excuse to try to take over the show. But that's the danger of audience participation and Lucy managed to keep control of viewers who seemed intent on auditioning for a show business career."

Chicago On Stage- Highly Recommended

"...The woman on stage looks like a Hollywood socialite right out of a 40s movie: expensive looking dress and jewels, hair that gives a new meaning to the phrase “too perfect,” a perpetual drink in her hand. Her affected voice and accent scream that she is a member of the coddled, too-cool-for-school elite that spends its time attending parties and openings and air-kissing friends and acquaintances. Even her name is precious: Lucy Darling. The truth is, though, that she is no more real than that perfectly coifed head of hair: Lucy is an alter ego of illusionist Carisa Hendrix, a world-renowned entertainer whose hilarious hour-long show is full of alcohol, hilarious improvised humor, audience interaction, and–of course–magic."
