TLC's reality TV star Theresa Caputo will be holding court in downtown Long Beach at the Terrace Theater, bringing the star of "Long Island Medium" to the area. During the intro to her reality show Caputo says, "I like to think of myself as a typical Long Island mom, but I have a very special gift: I talk to the dead.”
I think we can agree that it's quite a special gift, although Theresa has her detractors who call her a charlatan. You won't find a doubter among her millions of fans on Facebook and Twitter, or in the large group that tune in Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
This season Theresa has been dealing with what she likes to call her Empty Nest Syndrome, caused by both kids being out of the house most of the time. Daughter Victoria lives away at college and son Larry, Jr. who wasn't employed full time until this season, works in NYC, taking the train from Long Island each day.
We've also watched her and husband Larry travel to San Francisco during one of the best shows each season, "On The Road". Theresa Caputo, her hair and nails (so long they require their own zip code to reach them) strolled into a hat shop in Haight Ashbury and came out with a gift for Larry as well as a hat on her own head. There was marijuana smoke wafting through the store so perhaps her willingness to put anything on top of that perfectly created and sprayed hair style of hers could be attributed to that.
In a first for Theresa and "Long Island Medium" Caputo visited a local women's prison this season to give impromptu readings to inmates who did not know who they were getting to see as they gathered in a meeting room. In the episode titled, "Theresa Visits Jail" even hardened prisoners at a maximum security facility were touched by Caputo's willingness to earn their trust, bringing secrets to the surface and giving people some peace.
Theresa Caputo will appear in person on Tuesday June 3 at the Terrace Theater in Long Beach, with a show starting at 7:30 p.m. PT. Tickets can be purchased on the secondary market, from ticket brokers such as Barry's Tickets or Stub Hub.
