Hypnotist on stage Saturday

Michael C. Anthony

The Capitol Theatre, 220 W. Dominick St., hosts the touring stage show "Hypnotized!," starring Michael C. Anthony, at 7 p.m.

Reserved seat tickets are $17 for adults, seniors $16, Capitol Friends $15 and $6 for students — through college — and children.

Michael C. Anthony is recognized as one of the most successful stage hypnotists in the world today. In particular, he has attained "a tremendous following" at college campuses around the country. Campus Activities Magazine named him "Campus Male Performer of the Year."

The University of Akron noted that "Michael C. Anthony was AWESOME! He gave an incredible performance to a standing room only crowd. Our students were entertained beyond belief."

According to Anthony’s publicity, "An every day performer he is not. His show is an avant-garde blend of the human psyche and eye-popping theater. Imagine a world where volunteers fall asleep at the snap of his finger and will obey the most hilarious and ridiculous hypnotic suggestions."

Comedian/hypnotist Anthony estimates that he has hypnotized over 15,000 people, this far in his career which has taken him to hundreds of cities across the U.S. and Canada. He has recently appeared on various programs on the CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox television networks.
