TWIST IN THE BENDING
By JON BARNSLEY
URI Geller is helping Rupert Everett to be a real bender in a sparkling comedy-drama.
Rupert stars as a gay Kiwi journalist with a talent for contorting spoons in Seine Sunny Day at the Hampstead Theatre in London.
Uri Geller personally mangled the cutlery used in Martin Sherman’s brilliantly witty new play and gave Rupert some tips on mind-bending facial expressions.
In the interval Uri confessed to me that he actually remains calm during psychic activity. He demonstrated this by bending my teaspoon without a flicker of emotion. That impressed me almost as much as the play, which is set in Cairo during the war and involves love, lust and mystery.
Sherman’s six richly drawn characters include a one-lunged drama queen, who performs voodoo on her husband’s “tummy dancing” lover. The twist at the end is out of this world.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
