Robert Ford's "The Spiritualist" has been called "brilliant" and "magical" by critics, "because it will make you laugh, make you think, make you gasp with recognition."

When a crusading American newspaperman tries to unmask the self-proclaimed psychic as a fraud, he's in for a rockin' surprise. Seth Gordon directs the regional premiere of "The Spiritualist", a comic drama inspired by true events, at Stages Repertory Theatre. [less-]
