The most important thing I can say about “Jason Adams is a God Damn Mind Reader,” rocking Theatre on the Square’s second stage, is that if you want to see it, reserve your tickets in advance as every performance has been and will continue to sell out. Otherwise, you will miss out on this spectacle.
Part magician, part storyteller and all showman, Jason Adams engages the audience even before they enter the venue. Working the crowd and passing out cookies (Jammie Dodgers no less) his overwhelming charm is ever-present.
Once inside, his wife, Erin Adams, delights you with her lovely singing while Jason continues to engage the audience. How can one describe the level of enjoyment he coaxes from the crowd, except to say that the theater may have sustained structural damage from the overwhelming excitement.
The feats of magic and mind reading are silly and extremely cheeky but always entertaining. And you might come away with a newfound respect for Canada.
As the title suggests, there is a bit of mature language, but consider the show a PG-13.
If you are lucky enough to attend a performance, you will not be disappointed by a single moment of the show. Again, reserve your ticket now or miss out on the show all of the “cool kids” will be talking about for quite a while.
