Please Note: Due to a scheduling complication with the venue, the 5/26 performance of Tarot V has unfortunately been cancelled.
An actor, a dancer, a podcaster, a historian, a rapper, a yoga instructor, a vaudevillian and a zookeeper walk into a ritualistic variety show--it's not a joke, it's Tarot V.
At The Tarot Reading, a group of eclectic artists create variety show acts, each inspired by the Tarot. Each act is interactive, performed for and with one adventurous (consenting) audience member. What happens next is entirely honest and never happens the same way twice.
Featuring Mediums Gwen Grastorf, David S Kessler, Rachel Menyuk, Toni Rae Salmi, Rebecca Speas, Shaq Stewart, and Yasmin Tuazon. Joan Cummins is your host, The Fool.
The Tarot Reading is produced by The Arcanists, Inc. with support from ARCH Development.
About the Sacrifice
In order to enter The Tarot Reading, you must offer a sacrifice to whichever Gods will have you. The only requirement is that it be something of value. Your mom's bread recipe, that photo in your wallet, the secret you share with your middle school best friend. Of course, a cash tip works too if that's what you're into.
Whatever it is, it has to be something you are willing to part with forever. All sacrifices and their stories stay in our collection to be shared with everyone (anonymously).
We promise we'll keep it safe.

All The Different Ways to Experience The Tarot Reading
Friday, Saturday and Sunday Evenings are Classic Tarot. That means it's a full-length show of twenty-one acts (about three hours, with two intermissions) where you can choose how interactive you get.
