After Dr. Flagels’ last performance at Heritage Hall in 2013, the following critique was penned by  HH Board member and season pass holder Leni Smith. Gary Flegal’s performance at our performing arts theater, Heritage Hall exceeded all expectations. He had the audience, adults, and children, spellbound for 90 minutes. After the show, he took the time to meet the audience, talk with them individually, and sign autographs. He was very professional and a great entertainer. His show included many humorous moments as well as exciting and baffling magic tricks. After seeing Dr. Flegal, we all believe in magic!
