World Famous Impersonators, The Edwards Twins, Return to Ocean State Theatre
Remember all the wonderful variety shows from the 70s and 80s? Now is your chance to see them live and re-created by Las Vegas' number one impersonators of all time! Legendary superstars including Sonny & Cher, Billy Joel, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Lady Gaga, Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, Andrea Bocelli, Tom Jones, and many more, come alive in An Evening with The Stars - singing their number one hits, as well as other favorites.
Anthony and Eddie Edwards are identical twin brothers born and raised in California. Both boys were fascinated with celebrities at a very early age. Living near the famous NBC TV Studios in Burbank, they would sneak in and watch the various shows being taped. At home, the brothers would then play together, mimicking the stars and memorizing their comedy routines, so they could later perform for their family, friends, and neighbors the skits from "The Sonny and Cher Show" and "The Carol Burnett Show." The Edwards Twins mimic over 100 artists. When they hit the stage, they move, sing live, and perform like the actual stars and each of their impersonations is executed to perfection. NBC's "The Today Show" said The Edwards Twins were "extraordinary," while People Magazine proclaimed them to be "better than the real stars," and Carol Burnett said it's "the best show I've ever seen!"
An Evening with The Stars starring The Edwards Twins will be presented for two shows only on Wednesday, May 3 at 2:00 & 7:30 pm. The theatre is located at 1245 Jefferson Boulevard, Warwick, RI. Tickets are $49 for preferred seating, (limited to the front section only), and $39 for standard seating.
