ERIC WALTON: MENTALIST is a fascinating theatrical foray into the realms of parapsychology, metaphysics, and anomalous cognition, led by the critically-acclaimed mentalist, showman, and raconteur, Eric Walton. In this compelling and highly interactive seventy-five minute show, audiences witness and participate in mystifying demonstrations of mind-reading and other feats of extra-sensory perception by a true master of the art of mentalism. Your thoughts are not your own in the presence of ERIC WALTON: MENTALIST.
