Enjoy an evening of mind-reading and mentalist feats. It all starts at 7:30 at the PAC.

Experience the impossible Saturday, Nov. 1, at the Lee College Performing Arts Center when Banachek — the world’s leading mind reader and mentalist — liquefies metal cutlery, predicts your thoughts and performs other feats that seem to defy reality itself.

“Banachek: The Man that Fooled Scientists” is set for 7:30 p.m. A limited number of tickets are still available, and can be purchased online at www.lee.edu/pac.

An English-born, self-taught mentalist who began performing upon arriving in the United States in 1976, Banachek has developed a reputation around the world for his mind-blowing illusions. He rose to fame in the early 1980s after tricking scientists at Washington University in St. Louis into believing he possessed genuine psychic abilities as part of the Project Alpha hoax.

Magic masters like Uri Geller, David Blaine, Penn and Teller and Criss Angel have sought Banachek’s expertise, and he regularly performs to sold-out crowds across the globe. An award-winning entertainer and author of several books about thought-reading and mentalism, Banachek has also been featured on CNN Live, the “Today Show” and numerous television specials.
