In Sights: An Evening of Mind Reading

Jul 15— Jul 16, 2016

Can it be? Is it really possible for someone to know you better than you know yourself? Experience Michael Spremulli, The Asheville Mindreader, and you decide!

Michael Spremulli takes the art of personality profiling to another dimension. He blends his finely honed skills of sizing people up with his natural intuition. Michael credits his heightened intuitive abilities to being born with a severely diminished sense of vision. This forced him to rely on insight versus eyesight. The result is an immersive, interactive experience that has astounded audiences throughout the country.

Michael regularly performs nationally for corporate audiences and private events, but he calls Asheville home.

Recommended for Ages 16+

Grounded Slider

Grounded

Sep 21— Oct 9, 2016

When a hot-shot Airforce F16 fighter pilot becomes unexpectedly pregnant, she is removed from her super-sonic life in the sky and placed in a trailer in the Nevada desert to fight the “war on terror” piloting a drone. A powerful story of a solider pulled out of the battlefield and thrust into domestic life, from the blue abyss to a small grey screen, and into a reality she never imagined.

“The language paints such a vivid picture, it’s thrilling to realize that all of these images are conjured by the words of one person… Brant’s words pulse with the rhythms of an epic war poem, rendered in the most natural way.” – Theatre Mania

Presented in partnership with Immediate Theatre Project.

Discretionary Warning: Strong Language, some sexual content, and descriptions of violence.
