Theresa Caputo

The Orpheum Theatre {200 N. Broadway}
Saturday, September 25th, 7:30pm
$43.75 – $129.75

Theresa Caputo, from TLC’s hit show, Long Island Medium, will appear live and share personal stories about her life and explain how her gift works. She will deliver healing messages to audience members and give people comfort knowing that their loved ones who passed are still with them, just in a different way. “The Experience” brings Theresa face-to-face with her fans, as she lets spirit guide her through the audience. A video display ensures everyone in the venue has an up-close-hands-on experience regardless of seat location. “The experience isn’t about believing in mediums. It’s about witnessing something life-changing” says Theresa Caputo. “It’s like Long Island Medium live, witnessing first-hand spirit communication.” Although Theresa will be giving readings to various audience members throughout her show, the purchase of a ticket does not guarantee a reading.

The Rocky Horror Show

Crown Uptown Theatre {3207 E. Douglas}
October 21-24, 28-31, times vary by date

Steve Hitchcock Jr. steps back into the iconic role of Frank-N-Furter in this cult classic! One fateful night, Brad Majors and his fiancée, Janet Weiss — a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love — innocently set out to visit an old professor. Unfortunately for them, this night out is destined to be one they will never forget. A thunderstorm and a flat-tire force them to seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido. Brad, Janet, and Frank-N-Furter’s cohorts are swept up into the scientist’s latest experiment. The night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question everything they’ve known about themselves, each other, love, and lust. A loving homage to the classic B sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock’n’roll score, The Rocky Horror Show is a hilarious, wild ride that no audience will soon forget.
