We have just been notified that Peter Yarrow, who was slated as a special guest for the Lonesome Traveler presentation this Saturday, had a serious, unexpected illness. Peter required hospitalization, and despite the fact that he is in recovery he can not travel this weekend. We send him our best wishes.
We are continuing with the performance as scheduled because we believe in the quality of the cast and presentation and feel you will still have an excellent experience. Peter Yarrow attended this show before joining as a special guest, and below is a video clip of his endorsement for the production, which he attended with his daughter and granddaughter. In Peter’s words, the show, even without his appearance, is “absolutely wonderful.”
