IndyFringe: Hair-Raising Hypnotist

By Wendy Carson

Sadly, this show does not involve any witchcraft or voodoo. What it does have is a very talented hypnotist, Ray Adams, creating a hilarious hour of silliness for everyone involved.

While many people are afraid to be hypnotized, others find it refreshing. Your mind becomes very relaxed and allows you really break out of your shell. You will not do anything you don’t want to, but you will find yourself really, really wanting to do the things you are told during the show.

Ideally, this show best with a large audience and around 6 to 8 participants. However, the show I made it to barely had that many attendees; and yet it not only worked, our lone “hypnotee” was probably one of the best subjects I’ve ever seen. Fortunately, these attendance numbers are not typical and the remaining shows will be more like the opening night when the theater was packed.

Whether you’ve never seen a hypnosis show, or are an avid watcher of them, make sure you get out to catch this one while you can. It’s an enjoyable time for everyone involved.

Performances at IndyFringe Basile Theatre, Aug. 26 and 27. Get info and tickets at
