Performers conjure a house from thin air, using illusion, live music and inventive audience interaction. Residents move in, move out, clean up, burn down, sweep under, paint over, fence off and move on ... all among the traces of residents past, present and future. Home asks what a home is, where it is and what the difference is between a "house" and a "home." The magical, large-scale spectacle invites audiences to consider the physical and emotional bonds that connect us at Emerson Paramount Center Robert J. Orchard Stage in Boston.

The Séance Mystery Theater is an unforgettable, intimate theater experience at Hamilton Hall in Salem that uses stories, mind-reading, mentalism, psychic phenomena and a spirit séance to explore the boundaries of belief, faith, science and the supernatural. The show is approximately 75 minutes long, but actual times vary due to the unpredictable nature of the phenomena we invite into the room. Your "medium" or guide for the evening is Méliès, the stage name of acclaimed mentalist and magician John Sanbonmatsu. Meliès was named "Best Magician in Boston" in 2015 by the Thumbtack website, based on enthusiatic audience reviews of his unique blend of mind-reading, humor, illusion and mystery.
