Vinny DePonto's MENTAL AMUSEMENTS Now Extended for Four Additional Weeks

This fall, renowned mentalist and Drama Desk nominee Vinny DePonto (Charlatan) will bring audiences a new kind of online experience with his interactive show Mental Amusements, presented by Bristol Riverside Theatre (Amy Kaissar & Ken Kaissar, Producing Directors). Initially announced for four virtual performances, the run has extended for four additional weeks due to popular demand. Tickets are available now at brtstage.org.

Mental Amusements is a brand-new, interactive, virtual mind-reading show by award winning mentalist Vinny DePonto. Since Vinny can't go to Coney Island, he's bringing the carnival to computer screens. Audiences will be granted admission into a carefully crafted carnival for the mind, designed exclusively for the virtual stage. Experience mind control through the screen! Predictions of decisions made by randomly selected participants! Secret thoughts revealed - images, names, star signs, and more!

The full performance schedule is as follows: Thursday, September 24 at 7:30pm; Friday, September 25 at 7:30pm; Saturday, September 26 at 5:30pm & 7:30pm; Tuesday, October 13 at 8pm; Thursday, October 15 at 8pm; Friday, October 16 at 9pm; Saturday, October 17 at 8pm; Tuesday, October 20 at 8pm; Thursday, October 22 at 8pm; Friday, October 23 at 8pm & 10:30pm; Tuesday, October 27 at 8pm; Thursday, October 29 at 8pm; Friday, October 30 at 8pm & 10:30pm; Monday, November 2 at 8pm; Thursday, November 5 at 8pm; and Friday, November 6 at 8pm & 10:30pm. All performance times are in Eastern Time.

Tickets to Mental Amusements begin at $35 for General Admission, which allows audience members watch the show and comment without being seen or heard. Front Row tickets begin at $50 and allow audience members to participate in the show and maybe even have their minds read. A link to the show, along with the magic password, will be sent via email 24 hours prior to the show time. Tickets are available at brtstage.org.

The work of theater-maker and mentalist Vinny DePonto uses a combination of psychological tricks, illusion, visual art and immersive storytelling. His most recent off-Broadway stage show Charlatan was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Production. The New York Times says, "Mr. DePonto's craftsmanship consistently impresses." New York Daily News calls DePonto's one-man performance "breathtaking." In addition to his live performances, DePonto's consulting work was featured in the most recent production of Angels in America on Broadway, in Lincoln Center's Ghost Light and in hit television shows on the Discovery Channel, NBC and Netflix. He is also a member of the award-winning theater group Third Rail Projects. His solo work has been supported by Ars Nova, American Conservatory Theatre, Here Arts and The Orchard Project. He enjoys colorful socks, burrata and your deep, dark secrets..
