Mentalist sees GV in future

Bryan Quinn says he doesn’t have psychic abilities, but he promises to read minds at his Friday and Saturday shows in Grass Valley.

He calls himself a mentalist, a theatrical entertainer who demonstrates extraordinary mental powers by using psychology and observing nonverbal communication, such as body language.

Quinn is the first to admit that mind-reading absolutely sounds weird.

“The hardest thing in my business is to describe what a mentalist is,” he said this week. “The word ‘psychic’ is so loaded. I’m not comfortable saying I’m psychic because I’m also skeptical. But the definition of psychic in most dictionaries is having some intuition.

Are audience members going to walk away believing I can read their mind? Absolutely.”

Quinn says he’ll also perform “lighting fast” math calculations.

The two Grass Valley performances are part of a California and Nevada summer tour. The two-hour comedic show is different each time, Quinn said, because each audience has its own thoughts and personality.

“In smaller theaters like City Centre, everyone will be involved either from their seats or by their coming on stage,” Quinn said. “They can expect to have their minds read in one way or other.”

The shows start at 8 p.m. at City Centre Playhouse, 127-A Bank St.

The show is recommended for adults and children at least 10 years old.

Admission is $15. Call 477-1107 to reserve tickets.
