Charlatan: Secrets of the Victorian Psychics reviewed by Rob Stevens



If you want to spend a very different but still interesting hour in the theatre during the current Hollywood Fringe Festival, check out Charlatan: Secrets of the Victorian Psychics. Part lecture, part parlor magic trick show, part audience participation outing, part history lesson, Charlatan does keep your mind involved in the “scientific research” going on in the comfy confines of the Lounge Theatre 1. Dr. Mark Gasson, Neuroscientist and Guinness World Record Holder by day, is making his U.S. debut by delving into the murky world of Victorian fakery, trickery and fraud. Find out if you possess any psychic abilities. If you do, you may be called upon by Dr. Gasson to help him prove or debunk the psychic world. The preview performance was a very dry and musty outing. Dr. Gasson could use some pizzazz in his delivery and showmanship.
