While we can’t make COVID-19 disappear, one mentalist hopes to make our collective daily anguish vanish for an evening.
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. The virtual performances of Mental Amusements will take place on September 24-26.
Mental Amusements is a brand-new, interactive, virtual magic reading show the award-winning 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. Expect “mind control through the screen,” predictions of decisions made by randomly selected participants and secret thoughts revealed — images, names, star signs, and more.
Now in its 33rd season, Bristol Riverside Theatre has grown to produce over 200 performance every year, including five mainstage productions, special events and a summer music fest series.

General Admission ($35) allows audience members to watch the show and comment without being seen or heard.
Front Row tickets ($50) 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 showtime.
