His stage shows include Mind Reader (Brooklyn/Touring), Charlatan (Ars Nova Theater - Drama Desk Award Nomination, Time Out NY Critics Pick), and Mysterious Delights (DePonto's debut NYC show). The New York Times has said, “What distinguishes the good magician from the great is the rigor of execution and quality of artistry. Mr. DePonto’s craftsmanship consistently impresses” and the New York Daily News calls DePonto's one-man performance "Breathtaking.” Buzzfeed calls him “Engaging, suspenseful, and baffling." In addition to his live performances, DePonto also consults for television, film, and theater projects that require the use of practical effects, psychological illusions and modern trickery. He enjoys the aroma of antique shops, colorful socks, and your deep, dark secrets.
He currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.
