Richard Dreyfuss show at Capitol Theatre postponed again
Well, this is not a boat accident. Actually, it's recovery from recent back surgery that is postponing Richard Dreyfuss' appearance at Capitol Theatre for a second time.
The Academy Award winner is now scheduled to appear Jan. 9, 2016, which means the 40th anniversary tribute to Jaws that Dreyfuss was booked to celebrate will be pushing 41.
The program including a screening of Steven Spielberg's seminal summer blockbuster and a Q&A with Dreyfuss (moderated by yours truly) was originally slated for Sept. 10. That date was pushed to Nov. 7 when Dreyfuss' plans to undergo surgery were announced. A news release announced the most recent delay "with great regret."
Tickets purchased for either previously scheduled event will be honored at the Jan. 16 show. Tickets are available ($75, $55 and $39.50) at the Ruth Eckerd Hall box office, online at www.AtTheCap.com and by calling (727) 791-7400. A limited number of VIP tickets ($175) are available, including premium seating, a reception and a photo op with Dreyfuss.
