What if a psychic reading left you more uncertain about the future than when you walked in?
This is the hilarious question posed in Sam Bobrick’s new comedy, “The Psychic,” playing at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank.
A veteran TV writer whose credits include “Get Smart” and “The Andy Griffith Show,” Bobrick knows how to make people laugh, and “The Psychic” is no exception. There were few times when the audience wasn’t in hysterics, and Bobrick’s hilarious one-liners and snappy dialogue deserve all the credit.
The play follows the life of Adam Webster (Jeffrey Cannata), a down-on-his-luck writer in search of inspiration for his next story. He writes murder mysteries but has yet to sell anything. He finds his muse in Laura (played brilliantly by Dana Green), a beautiful woman who comes for the $25 psychic readings he advertises.
