As of mid-afternoon on Friday, March 13, the special performance of the touring documentary play "SEVEN," set to take place this Thursday, March 19 at the Historic Holmes Theatre in Detroit Lakes, has been canceled.
Earlier this week, Susan Loewenberg, the producing director of LA Theatre Works — the group bringing the production to Minnesota — said that the tour's swing through the state from March 11-19 was likely to mark the end of it, as venues scheduled for performances later on in the tour had begun canceling or postponing shows due to concerns over the coronavirus.
"We'll probably be going home after Minnesota," said Loewenburg on Thursday; now, the group will be headed back to California even earlier than planned.
Holmes Theatre Marketing Director Rachel Hofstrand said Friday that there are no plans to reschedule the performance.
'Bridge Over Troubled Water' rescheduled
Another show scheduled to take place this Saturday, March 14 at the Holmes Theatre, a tribute to the iconic Simon & Garfunkel album "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by St. Cloud-based band Collective Unconscious, has also been shut down — but according to information available on the theater's website, this performance has been rescheduled to July 25.
"If you have tickets we will honor them at the new date," said the post on the theater's website, dlccc.org/holmes-theatre.html. "If you can't make the new date, we will give you a full refund."
For more information on either the cancellation of "SEVEN" or the rescheduling of "Bridge Over Troubled Water," call the Holmes Theatre Box Office at 218-844-7469.
