Part storytelling, part side-show, part sorcery. All unforgettable.
The Tarot Reading is a variety show like nothing else. A group of eclectic artists create singular acts for one yet many, each inspired by a card of the Tarot. Each act is interactive, performed for and with one adventurous (consenting) audience member.
What story is waiting for you?

ABOUT THE TICKETS
The Tarot Reading has two ticket types, so you can choose how interactive you want to get.
Seeker tickets are for the adventurous. If you choose to be a Seeker, you'll get a random Tarot card at entry. You'll witness the night unfold, and when your card is drawn you'll get to take part in that act made special for you. Anything you add here per ticket beyond $1 can serve as your sacrifice.
Witness tickets are for the laid back. If you choose to be a Witness, you'll get to watch the Seekers get their readings from the comfort of your seat in the lounge. Anything you add here per ticket beyond $1 can serve as your sacrifice.
ABOUT THE SACRIFICE
In order to enter The Tarot Reading, you must offer a sacrifice to whichever Gods will have you. This sacrifice can be monetary, but it doesn't have to be. The only requirement is that it be something of value. It can be your mom's bread recipe, that photo in your wallet, the secret you share with your middle school best friend...
Whatever it is, it has to be something you are willing to part with forever. We promise we'll keep it safe.
Any cash you add to your ticket price here can be considered your sacrifice (we certainly appreciate it.)
