Dinner with a mind-reader
Salvatore’s hosts master mentalist Jon Stetson for a dinner show at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 20, at the restaurant and function hall in Lawrence.
For more than 25 years, Stetson has been mixing mind-reading, magic and comedy in performances for audiences all over the world. From simple card games to one-on-one mind-reading interactions, Stetson’s performance is far from the pull-a-rabbit-out-of-a-hat magic show. In an engaging show, Stetson is capable of surprising the staunchest skeptics with his gift of intuition.
Tickets are $45 and include a dinner buffet. Doors open at 7 p.m., with hors d’oeuvres and dinner served until 8 p.m. The Stetson Experience Dinner Show starts at 8:30 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets visit http://drinkwaterproductions.com or call 855-255-5750. Salvatore’s Riverwalk Function Facility is located at 354 Merrimack St., Lawrence.
Fun with fungus
From the camp of unexpected entertainment: Greg Marley, author and expert on mushrooms, will give a slideshow and talk about wild fungi at North Parish Church in North Andover. The event, a fund-raiser for the church, is Saturday, April 20, at 4 p.m. Admission is $10.
Laugh and Listen
Christine Lavin and Don White bring comedy and song to The New Moon Coffeehouse in Haverhill at 8 p.m., Saturday, April 20.
With a comedienne’s irony and wit, Lavin’s delightfully skewed songs cover a lot of territory. (Relationships: “What Was I Thinking?” Politics: “Baracolate Chip Cookies.” Life’s injustices: “Attractive Stupid People,” and a lot more.)
Coming from the world of stand-up comedy, White is a family man whose concerts can turn what happens in his home into a hilarious onstage biopic. His funny and often touching songs like “How to Get Your Kids to Leave Home,” “Be 16 With Me,” and “Rascal” go straight to his audience’s heart.
