The Ritz Theater Presents The Amazing Kreskin World-Famous Mentalist

  |   February 27, 2012  |  Comment

The Ritz Theater is pleased to present the world’s most famous mentalist, The Amazing Kreskin on Saturday, March 24 with two performances at 3 PM and 8PM in the Ritz Theater Lobby at 107 Broadway in Newburgh. Kreskin promises to find his hidden check or forfeit his fee!

The Amazing Kreskin, a bona fide mentalist, has been captivating audiences for more than six decades, with a showman’s flair and comedian’s wit! His very name has become an integral part of pop culture throughout the world, invoked in comedy clubs, comic strips, print stories, and TV shows.

In 2008, Tom Hanks produced and co-starred with John Malkovich in “The Great Buck Howard” which was fashioned after the Amazing Kreskin’s life. After over 50 years of performing, Kreskin has a new cult following. To quote David Letterman, “Kreskin should sue the producers of the TV show, “The Mentalist” for stealing his act. He’s the best mentalist in the world and he’s not acting!” Kreskin can tell people things about themselves that only a close family member or friend would know!

For his performance in Newburgh, The Amazing Kreskin has asked that his check be hidden somewhere in the Ritz Theater Lobby during the show. He will attempt to find it and if he fails, he will forfeit his fee. In addition Kreskin will offer $1,000,000.00 to anybody who can prove that he employs paid secret assistants or confederates in any phase of his program to help him perform his mentalist “effects.”

The performances will be held in the Ritz Theater Lobby at 107 Broadway in Newburgh. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased through TicketWeb at (866) 468-7619, www.ticketweb.com, via our website at www.ritztheaternewburgh.org, or by calling the Ritz Theater Box Office at (845) 784-1199.
