MIND GAMES AT THE INKUBATOR THEATRE | May 25, 26 & 27, 2017

Mentalist Jeff Newman will influence thoughts, make impossible predictions, and even reads the minds of his audience live on stage. He’ll fool you badly, and you’ll love every minute of it.

Through science, suggestion, and good old-fashioned trickery Jeff Newman takes your on a mind-boggling journey that has you revisit some of his favourite childhood games as they get a mentalist twist.

The INKubator Theatre in Eau Claire Market
200 Barclay Parade, SW, Calgary
