Out of Your Mind The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays. Continues through Sept. 25 2014

In today's overexposed, uncensored digital age, the mysteries of mind reading continue to amaze. Especially when they're coupled with improv and presented at an hour when most of the audience is probably inebriated. ComedySportz ensemble member Eric Lindberg's comedic brand of mentalism is entertaining and genuinely impressive, with heavy participation from attendees. Tricks run the gamut from reading names or cards to offering proofs of mind control such as a premade CD with a song picked at random by an audience member. What could use some tweaking are the setup, pacing, and chitchat between bits; on the night I attended, Lindberg's divorced parents, in the audience, became victims of some particularly awkward banter during a test of their mental communication. —Marissa Oberlander
