Patchogue Theatre to Present THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SERIAL KILLERS AND WHY THEY CAPTIVATE US

Audiences can expect to learn what motivates these monster criminals, hear chilling insights into these deviant minds, and the truth behind the headlines.

The Psychology of Serial Killers and Why They Captivate Us, hosted by Dr. Scott Bonn, one of the world's leading experts on criminal behavior, is coming to Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts on Friday, May 12 at 8pm. Lobby and bar concessions open at 7pm. Tickets range between $45-$65 incl. fees. Purchase online at PatchogueTheatre.org or at the Box Office, (631) 207-1313, 71 East Main Street in Patchogue. Audiences can expect to learn what motivates these monster criminals, hear chilling insights into these deviant minds, and the truth behind the headlines.

"The Psychology of Serial Killers is not your average show. It will uncover the many mysteries behind this unnerving topic. Audiences will leave the theater with a greater understanding of what makes these criminals do what they do. We will also learn something out ourselves - why are we so interested in the likes of Dahmer, Gacy, Rader and others? Right Angle Entertainment is honored to produce this tour designed for both the true crime fan and anyone interested in this topic. It will educate and enthrall." - says Alison Spiriti, Executive Producer, Right Angle Entertainment

Most serial killers live among their neighbors for years without detection before they are apprehended. The Psychology of Serial Killers is a touring masterclass in this very dark subject, tackling questions like: Who are these monsters and why do they commit their horrific crimes? What are the common traits that they share? Why are we fascinated with them? What is the motivation to kill and kill again? Are the victims random or calculated? Most serial killers are white males- why? Why do some women fall in love with serial killers? These questions and many others will be explored in this intense and intriguing deep dive into the psychology of these Jain humans. Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Richard Ramirez, John Wayne Gacy, and others will be analyzed and discussed. Audiences will be introduced into the warped and depraved world of The Psychology of Serial Killers.

Review: John W. Engeman Theaters THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL Photo
What did our critic think of THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL at John W. Engeman Theater At Northport? I must admit I was a little hesitant in seeing The Scarlet Pimpernel because I was starting to believe Frank Wildhorn was a one-hit wonder on Broadway. That one hit wonder of course being Jekyll & Hyde, a great musical with a fantastic score despite what the critics said. His latest productions that I've seen (Wonderland, Bonnie and Clyde) just didn't measure up.

Review: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING At Bacca Arts Center Photo
Part of the Bard's First Folio, Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy about two intertwined love stories. After a group of soldiers arrive in Messina, love emerges between Hero, the Governor's daughter, and Claudio, a young officer. The young pair then conspire with Don Pedro, Claudio's commanding officer, to play matchmaker and set-up Beatrice, Hero's cousin, and Benedick, Claudio's friend and fellow officer. This turns out to be no easy task indeed as both Beatrice and Benedick have both a distaste for love...and each other. Will love prevail for both couples? Or will they fall victim to the sinister scheme of Don Pedro's brother and self-proclaimed villain, Don John?
