Shaw Show: A New Adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s Masterpiece, Pygmalion @ GOFF
Mar 12 @ 7:00 pm – 7:15 pm
Shaw Show: A New Adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Masterpiece, Pygmalion @ GOFF | Pawtucket | Rhode Island | United States

Tickets are now on sale to see “Shaw Show”, a new stage adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s classic play and film, Pygmalion. This new work, written and directed by Duane Langley, will officially open on March 12, following a preview on March 11.

Shaw’s Pygmalion (which was later adapted into a musical known as My Fair Lady) was first presented to the public in 1913. The story goes like this: Henry Higgins (Langley) a phonetician, accepts a bet that simply by changing the speech of a Cockney flower seller he will be able, in six months, to pass her off as a duchess. Eliza Doolittle (Hannah Heckman-McKenna) undergoes grueling training. When she successfully “passes” in high society—having in the process become a lovely woman of sensitivity and taste—Higgins dismisses her abruptly as a successfully completed experiment. Eliza, who now belongs neither to the upper class, whose mannerisms and speech she has learned, nor to the lower class, from which she came, rejects his dehumanizing attitude. As Eliza would say, “What you are to do without me, I cannot imagine.”

With an all-star cast, a gorgeous steampunk style, and a heavy dose of technical wizardry, “Shaw Show” (the debut production from Pawtucket’s own Before The Horse Entertainment) is quickly becoming one of Rhode Island’s Can’t-Miss Shows of the New Year!

Bernard Ilsey – The London Medium @ Greenwich Odeum
Mar 28 @ 8:00 pm
Bernard Ilsey – The London Medium @ Greenwich Odeum | East Greenwich | Rhode Island | United States

Limited VIP tickets available – includes a ticket to the show, a meet & greet and signed book!

Bernard Ilsley – The London Medium is one of the most gifted psychic mediums this century. His amazing ability enables him not only to see the future, but also to make contact with loved ones, ancient spirits and angels.

Bernard Ilsley is a third generation psychic, born with the gift, leaving most people who witness his ability astounded. He works with spirit guides and is able to consult each different spirit guide depending on which specialized subject he is working on, for the individual consulting him. For example, for his Clairvoyance work he consults his North American Indian guide ‘Silver Cloud,’ for spiritual healing he consults his Chinese spirit guide ‘Dr Chan,’ both of which from time to time give Bernard philosophy to channel through, which in its own right is quite a phenomenon.
His first connection with his spirit guides occurred when he was eight, whilst painting an egg, he found he could tune out to tune in, his spirit guide painted an ancient Chinese pattern to everyones amazement.

He joined a development circle in his late teens, run by his grandmother, of whom herself was a medium of standing in the media, often in news papers and on BBC radio, her name ‘Edith Cole’.

Tickets to this event include an additional $5 Historic Restoration Fee which assists in restorations and repairs of the Greenwich Odeum. When purchasing tickets online, an additional $2 convenience fee per transaction will be applied. Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
