RED BANK: LIGHTHEARTED PSYCHIC AT BASIE

maureen_hancock-1620880“Medium Next Door” Maureen Hancock makes her Count Basie Theatre debut Thursday night.

You needn’t possess a sixth sense, second sight, or psychic gift to divine that live appearances by the breed of professionals known as Spirit Mediums are among the most consistently popular offerings booked into the Count Basie Theatre.

As the Basie’s veep of operations Izzy Sackowitz notes, the venue has historically done well with such personalities as John “Crossing Over” Edward, Lisa “Voices from the Other Side” Williams and Theresa “Long Island Medium” Caputo — figures who’ve ditched the magic-shop turbans and crystal balls in favor of a conversational style that “establishes a real rapport with the audience,” he says. “There’s a sense that these people come from very ordinary backgrounds, and they share something in common with the viewer.”

On Thursday, the Basie stage hosts the local debut of Maureen Hancock, the self-styled “internationally renowned Spirit Medium, intuitive, teacher, lecturer, Holistic Healer, and author of the bestselling book, The Medium Next Door: Adventures of a Real-Life Ghost Whisperer.”

The subject of the Style Network documentary Psychic In Suburbia promises to bring “lighthearted laughter to connect with your loved ones,” as part of an interactive presentation that’s being pitched as “the most unique family reunion you will ever witness.”

Take it here for tickets ($30-$50) to the 8 pm performance by Maureen Hancock. Tickets are also on sale for a March 19, 2015 appearance by veteran “Ghost Whisperer” James Van Praagh, on the Basie boards.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
