Vinny
DePonto

The work of theater-maker and mentalist Vinny DePonto uses a combination of psychological tricks, illusion, visual art, and immersive storytelling. His most recent off-Broadway stage show Charlatan was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Production, with The New York Times saying “Mr. DePonto’s craftsmanship consistently impresses,” and New York Daily News calling DePonto’s one-man performance “breathtaking.” In addition to his live performances, DePonto’s consulting work was featured in the most recent production of Angels in America on Broadway, in Lincoln Center’s Ghost Light, and in hit television shows on the Discovery Channel, NBC, and Netflix. He is also a member of the award-winning theater group Third Rail Projects. His solo work has been supported by Ars Nova, American Conservatory Theater, American Repertory Theater at Harvard, and The Orchard Project. He enjoys burrata, whimsical socks, and your deep, dark secrets. He currently lives in upstate New York.
