Meet Alice, your everyday Manhattanite, with one little exception...she can move objects with the power of her mind, read your mind, and possibly tell you your future! It wasn't always thus; all it took was one bad day. Now Alice is out to find if she's not alone. And what better way than a TELEKINESIS PARTY!!! A little mental soiree turns into an evening of cerebral Olympics with citywide repercussions. Join us for an evening of light bulb bursting, nose bleeding, mind-bending comedy written by Damon Heath Sager and brought to you by the Gossip Factory. After you meet Alice, Carrie's prom will seem like a tea party.
This production is being presented through the Summer Sublet Series, part of HEREstay, HERE's curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical and administrative support.

Jesse R. Tendler as Harry
An actor by the age of four, Jesse has an extensive and diverse list of credits. His theatre and musical theatre credits range from Hamlet to Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood to the Velveteen Rabbit, and also include various new works. Television and film credits include: The Ellen Burstyn Show (series regular); The Secret, Hallmark Television Special (co-starring w/Kirk Douglas) for which he earned a Youth in Film Awards nomination for Best Child Actor in a Television Movie; Twelve (v/o, w/Joel Schumacher); Guiding Light; Are You Afraid of the Dark?; and Law & Order, among others. Jesse has also appeared in numerous television commercials (one of which won him a Clio Award for Best Child Actor in a TV Commercial), radio spots, and video games including Bully and two editions of Grand Theft Auto (Rockstar Games). Though an actor first and foremost, Jesse has enjoyed making the jump into producing as well, which began with the co-founding of Intimation Theatre Company in 2007. Jesse continues to produce a diverse range of film and theatrical projects on a regular basis. Jesse attributes the rebirth of his love for acting to his 4 years in the cast of the Mask & Wig Club of the University of Pennsylvania. In addition to his creative endeavors, Jesse is also a freelance editor/proofreader, an expert standardized test tutor, and the coordinator of ongoing volunteer trips to Guatemala. Jesse is happy to be working with such a dedicated, ambitious, and talented group of people in Mind the Art.
