About this show

A Coney Island fixture for over a decade and "a performer of dazzling skill" according to New York Magazine, Todd Robbins has emerged as one of the world's most highly trusted experts in deceit and trickery. Dark Deceptions brings all the hallmarks of what was a thriving, late-19th century underground séance scene back to shocking life. Some of these pulse-stopping phenomena -- messages on writing tablets, apparitions, bells ringing, levitating objects and tables, were conjured and mastered by a well-traveled network of talented spiritualists and supernaturalists, many of whom Robbins knows by name. Drawing on a seemingly fathomless wealth of knowledge in the realm of the deceptive, Robbins uses covert trance induction techniques as well as other tricks to produce manifestations right before the eyes of the audience. The result is that sitters succumb to the illusion that the dead have returned to walk among the living.
