Meet the Cast
The work of theatre-maker and mentalist Vinny DePonto uses a combination of psychological tricks, illusion, visual art, and immersive storytelling. His most recent Off-Broadway stage show Charlatan was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Production. The New York Times says, “Mr. DePonto’s craftsmanship consistently impresses.” The New York Daily News calls DePonto’s one-man performance “Breathtaking.” In addition to his live performances, DePonto’s consulting work was featured in the most recent production of Angels in America on Broadway, in Lincoln Center’s Ghost Light, and in hit television shows on The Discovery Channel, NBC, and Netflix. He is also a member of the award-winning theatre group Third Rail Projects. His solo work has been supported by Ars Nova, The American Conservatory Theater, HERE Arts, The Geffen Playhouse, and The Orchard Project. He enjoys burrata, colorful socks, and your deep, dark secrets.
