"We mourn Hal Holbrook's death but celebrate his artistry. MIFA Victory Theatre was so proud to present him in "Mark Twain Tonight!" at Holyoke High School in 2011. I'll never forget my dinner with him at Tavern on the Hill, his happy memories of Holyoke, Massachusetts, having just come from visiting his former wife Ruby, our trip to the Stop and Shop that night where he was immediately recognized by the checkout clerk and his heart wrenching, but inspiring meeting with Holyoke High School students sharing his pain about being an abandoned child. Viva Hal, Viva Theater, Viva Holyoke."
-Don Sanders, Executive Artistic Director MIFA Victory Theatre
