Theresa Caputo, Long Island Medium
Beacon Theatre , Upper West Side Sunday June 22 2014 15:00

Theresa Caputo communicates with the dead (or so she suggests). She does it every week on her TLC show, Long Island Medium, and now she’s coming to the Beacon Theatre to conduct her séance live with two shows on Sunday 22. We caught up with the touring Long Islander—she was in Nevada when we spoke—to find out just what we can expect from her live show (though some of her guests, of course, are not live.) Whether you’re a skeptic or true believer, there’s something undeniably transfixing about watching the big-haired blonde communing with the spirits.

What can you tell us about your New York gigs? What can we expect?
Well, the show’s gonna be about me showing up with my hair and my nails done. And spirit channeling, you know? Believe it or not, there are gonna be some people at the show who don’t know who I am, so I give some examples of how the spirit is going to communicate in a large venue like that.

Can you “medium” in a venue that big?
We’ve been able to create a very intimate setting. I want everyone to feel that they’re part of this life-changing event. I go on the road and do all these live shows and they’re in these legendary venues and it’s crazy. But to be at the Beacon, in my home city, I’m so super excited.

What’s the best part about living on Long Island?
What isn’t there to love about Long Island? I’m sorry, I just feel like it’s the best place. I love Long Island. I feel like I have the best of both worlds. I’m 30 miles outside of Manhattan, 15 minutes from Jones Beach. Great shopping and amazing people, and lots of shopping!
