James Van Praagh
“It was very, very natural when I began to see my deceased grandfather standing at the end of my bed,” James Van Praagh relates on his YouTube channel. Indeed, the spiritual medium reports having perceived spirits from beyond and the inner secrets of the living from early childhood without realizing his gift was anything out of the ordinary. Although he’s since discovered the uniqueness of his abilities—which he describes on his website as ““clairsentient,”” or being able to ““feel the emotions and personalities of the deceased”“—he maintains that they’re just a well-developed version of a power everyone can access. “It is up to you to train your intuition,” he writes in Heaven and Earth: Making the Psychic Connection, one of many popular books he’s written to help bring earth dwellers nearer to the spiritual realm.
During his live show, the soft-spoken man with the wide blue eyes leads the audience in healing meditation and drives home the message that departed loved ones remain connected to the living. He’ll also relay any communications he picks up from the spirits of the deceased to the audience (though a personal reading is not guaranteed). Such events carry on Van Praagh’s years-long mission of spreading his message of spiritual development, which he’s also accomplished as an executive producer of the CBS series Ghost Whisperer and through appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Phil, and 20/20. <p>
Rialto Square Theatre
Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
