WABC'S Rita Cosby Gets Mesmerized By Kreskin

NEW YORK ― “Astounding.” “Flabbergasting.” “Incredible.”

Kreskin is a friend of mine and I have seen his talents privately many times. Kreskin is really "AMAZING".

These are just some of the adjectives guaranteed to be flying around New York City in the Spring when THE AMAZING KRESKIN debuts his off-Broadway production, “The Amazing Kreskin LIVE” Thursday, April 12 at Theatre Row – Lion Theatre, 410 W. 42nd St., NYC 10036. Tickets, at $37.25 & $52.25, on sale Thursday, Feb. 22 at or by phone at 212-239-6200.

The three-week residency will showcase the legendary mentalist’s you-gotta-see-‘em-to-believe-‘em abilities as a reader of people’s thoughts which have mesmerized — and yes, amazed — fans of all ages around the world for some six decades. Marvel as Kreskin ascertains the suit and value of cards selected randomly by audience members. Watch in wonder as he displays his unprecedented mental powers by reciting information written in secret by those in attendance.

And, of course, Kreskin will climax each performance of “The Amazing Kreskin LIVE” with his signature piece, in which he requests that his check be hidden somewhere in the venue. If he fails to find it, he will forfeit that show’s fee.

To confirm the legitimacy of this and his other awesome feats of psychic literacy, Kreskin continues to offer $100,000 to anyone who can empirically prove he employs paid secret assistants or confederates in any phase of his act. Not surprisingly, the bounty never has been claimed.

As for the upcoming off-Broadway run, Kreskin counts it among his numerous career highlights (which include late-night TV stints with Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman, as well as 88 appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, and his own hit TV series, The Amazing World of Kreskin).

“I’ve spent my entire adult life travelling the world performing for presidents, kings and the elite of dozens of nations, but never have I been more excited about an engagement than this one,” says Kreskin. “To have the opportunity to perform for New York audiences on an extended basis is one of the great honors and privileges of my career.”
