Mindreader Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays, 12-3 p.m. Continues through June 22 2013

Beforehand, I sign a waiver stating that I'm comfortable wearing handcuffs. A woman tells me this won't be like anything I've experienced before, and I'm not sure what she's getting at until ten minutes later, when I'm standing chained to the wall of a broom closet with a killer breathing down my neck, and only the supernatural ability to read his thoughts to save me. This performance bills itself as a haunted house: every 20 minutes a single guest wanders into a labyrinth of starchy black curtains, rooms filled with monsters, severed hands, and all manner of stage guns. It's the chance to play the superhero, who, through ingenuity, a keen sense of direction—and some suspension of disbelief—can defeat the villain. It's fun, if a bit hokey and transparent. Be warned, though, that you need to quickly figure out the rules—otherwise this is a performance you won't see to the end. —Hannah Gold
