Hal Holbrook to perform in Ocean City, July 30

(July 23, 2015) Legendary star of stage, screen and television, Hal Holbrook, will bring his award-winning one-man play to the Performing Arts Center at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center on 40th Street, Thursday, July 30.  
The show was originally slated for June 6, but in a joint statement released by the artist and the promoter, “Due to the conflicting date with the Belmont Stakes and the potential for another Triple Crown winner, Hal Holbrook and Bob Rothermel of TEAM Productions have decided to postpone his performance to July 30.”
“Although ticket sales were steady, I was concerned about how the anticipated media hype regarding the potential for a triple crown winner would impact ticket sales in the last few days leading up to the show,” Rothermel added. “[The] last 10 to 14 days are very important to a show’s success and if we can’t break through the hype about a horse, the show could possibly be negatively impacted. The new date has been selected for the show based upon the availability of the venue and Mr. Holbrook’s schedule.”
All tickets purchased for the original date of June 6 will be honored for the new date of July 30. Ticket holders do not need to exchange them as they will automatically be converted to the new date.  Those who can not make the July 30 date will be able to receive a refund.  
Tickets for the new date of July 30 are available at the Convention Center Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations.
“Mr. Holbrook is truly a living legend who has received countless accolades and awards for not only this show but for his entire body of work,” Rothermel said. “It is an honor to bring him to Ocean City’s Performing Arts Center. This is a once in a lifetime experience.”
