Sebastian learned that he had special abilities when he was nine years old and a relative passed away. After the funeral, he was talking to his grandpa (who passed) in his bedroom. When he told his parents they were upset and obviously didn't believe him, until he told them what he said. Sebastian told his parents where some of his grandpa's possessions were hidden and lo and behold, when his parents checked it out, there they were.
During the show, you will be astonished when Sebastian knows what audience members draw or write on a piece of paper, simply by touching the envelope it is enclosed in or tell you what word you picked out in a book by touching that book while blindfolded. Of course, every show is different and dependent on the audience, so be forewarned that anything that happens during the show is unexpected.

Canal Park Playhouse and The TRUF are going to be presenting the first NY revival of Someone Who'll Watch Over Me, written by Frank McGuinness and directed by Justin Lauro. The show, which has not been seen in New York since its Tony Award-nominated Broadway premiere in 1993, explores the bonds between an Englishman, an Irishman, and an American (sounds like the start to a good joke, right?) who are held as political prisoners in Beirut.
Their captors use silence as a weapon and the men's survival depends on their communication with one another and create unbreakable friendships in terrible circumstances. The show stars Patrick Taylor, Timothy Riley and Alex Teachey.
