Thought I would post this press release with regard to “The Hereafter Musical.” Frankie Keane and Vinnie Favale, VP of Late Night Programming CBS/David Letterman stated that I played a role in the development of the psychic character. You can check out some vids and audio from the show here – http://hereaftermusical.com/ . Its run is over, but, I understand, it may come back.

Mind Reader with Psychic Touch Inspires Character in New Off-Broadway Musical

New York, NY (March 13, 2012) – The off-Broadway production of the new musical “Hereafter,” which opens April 24th at Theatre 80 St. Marks Place in New York, pulls some of the characteristics of its medium/psychic from mentalist Bob Garner.

Frankie Keane, the co-writer of the musical along with Vinnie Favale, VP of Late Night Programming CBS/David Letterman, met Garner at a trade show 4 years ago, but her memory of that meeting remains strong. It was after watching Garner’s presentation and speaking with him that she used what she learned from Garner to eventually create the character of the show’s medium/psychic Jason. In the musical, Jason meets with 3 women who have suffered the loss of a loved one. During that visit, the women are struggling with the loss of their loved ones, yet we learn that the lost ones are also struggling with making contact with them. If the spirits make contact to bring closure to the women and ease their pain, it also means that they – the spirits – will disappear into the unknown of the hereafter. Jason struggles with having to help both the living and the dead deal with these issues.

Keane, herself, was in her words “a struggling actress,” when she met Garner. Keane was working at a medical trade show in New Orleans and while having dinner one night, struck up a conversation with a fellow diner who was attending the same show. Her fellow diner spoke about witnessing mind reader Garner at a corporation’s exhibit at the show and shared his reactions to Garner’s presentation. He talked Keane into watching Garner the next day. She did and according to Keane, it changed her life. Keane remembers, “I watched as Bob so generously took his time with all of the people who had come to see him and how each one of them had their lives forever changed that day. I had no idea how much he would impact my life, not to mention my career.”

After his presentation, Keane spoke with Garner and they exchanged business cards. Keane notes, “I kept his card always in a safe place. Little did I know, it would be Bob who would be the model for what would become such a huge part in my life.”

Keane states that many of the attributes that she contributed to the character of Jason came from meeting Garner and his ability to connect with people and share viable wisdom. Favale adds, “Every time Frankie and I would work on the character of Jason, she would refer to the encounter she had with Bob years ago and how much he impacted her life. I know that it was very important to her that our medium have some of the positive attributes she took away from meeting Bob Garner. He has truly been an inspiration.”

Garner professes not to be a psychic or a medium. Instead, he states that he is a mentalist who specializes in appearing at trade shows and speaking at meetings and events for Fortune 1000 corporations, worldwide. 

However, Garner does deliver astonishing information to those who watch him. To that Garner states, “I am, firstly, an entertainer. However, I have studied psychology, religion and spirituality and try to provide words of hope and encouragement, as well as common sense advice to those who watch my presentations. I do feel that at times, like many people, my intuition is heightened and through that I am able to provide what some consider valuable guidance.”

Judging by the remarks on Garner’s website from those who have personally seen him or have read his articles, it appears that the advice and guidance he delivers is solid and has helped people to improve their lives. In fact, many people eagerly await Garner’s free podcasts – which he dishes out when he’s not on the road – about such topics as how to diminish worry and fear, deal with stress, and realize happiness. About his advice, Keane states, ” I can only hope that many more people get to experience his selfless gift that he shared with me… and that their lives are forever changed by it, as mine has been. He is truly a gifted man.”

Most companies hold hospitality events and provide the usual drinks and snacks or other food. With regard to hospitality suite entertainment, occasionally, there is a band or disc-jockey, a casino night, etc. These are considered “the norm,” and do little to differentiate your event from the next. Obviously, to go beyond the normal, requires doing something different.

If you want to go beyond the normal, then you may want to enlist the aid of mentalist Bob Garner. Bob is a mind reader and entertainer that adds the “WOW” factor to any event. Primarily because mind reading is such a personal thing, yet it can be performed in front of large groups, as well.

Having your mind read  – in a fun way – is something that most people have never experienced. Bob is a master at getting people involved in his show and making your guests feel special. Unlike walk-around magicians who have a tendency to interrupt conversations, Bob is stationed behind a table with chairs in front. This allows for a more sophisticated setting and allows your guests come to him and stay as long as they like.

Needless to say, his station is always full and, even more importantly, your guests talk about your event long after it is over. You may want to check out the video below, where one of Bob’s recent clients confirmed that Bob “rocked” the house at their latest hospitality event.

When deciding on how to make your next hospitality suite or event more memorable, make sure that you go beyond the normal and provide your guests with something they will remember and talk about… after your event is over.

After all, you can spend a lot of money on food, drinks, or a disc-jockey, as well as a casino night, but how much “mind share” do you think you will receive for that expenditure?
