A good impersonation can be indistinguishable from the real thing, which is why Method actors are no longer allowed to play dictators. Take in a safer form of imitation with this GrouponLive deal: for $40, you get two general-admission tickets to see the Neil Diamond Tribute King of Diamonds one man show at the Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby (an $80 value). Choose between the following Mother’s Day showtimes:
- Sunday, May 13, at 4 p.m.
- Sunday, May 13, at 7 p.m.<p>
Dubbed the “King of Diamonds,” Rob Garrett invokes the iconic singer-songwriter Neil Diamond in image and sound as he pays onstage tribute in his one man show. With feathered hair and sparkling costumes, Garrett crafts a faithful facsimile of the superstar by mimicking his voice, mannerisms, and love of tasselled shirts. Garrett draws on Diamond’s catalogue of hits, such as “Sweet Caroline,” “I Am, I Said,” and “Beautiful Noise.” Though not included with this Groupon, guests can begin the evening by availing themselves of a featured menu, fueling vocal chords for sing-alongs and fingers for snapping to the star’s impromptu slam poetry.
