The Forbes Center has found out that travel problems created by Hurricane Florence are going to wreak havoc on the national tour schedule for Lonesome Traveler. The company is unlikely to make it to Harrisonburg for the performance given the inevitability of airline cancellations and delayed flights. The company has decided to postpone the engagement and reschedule on another date. The good news is that the performance will remain on the season. The box office will reach out to all ticket buyers again when we have a new date for the show. We apologize for the inconvenience. Many thanks for your continued patronage of the Forbes Center for the Performing Arts.
