Lutcher adds second Cosby performance

ORANGE — If you did not get your tickets to the sold out Bill Cosby performance this July, then take a deep breath because you might just be in luck.

The Lutcher Theater has announced a second Bill Cosby show has been added and tickets are now on sale. The show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Thursday, July 24 and tickets are $35-$75 each and available by calling 409-886-5535 or online at www.lutcher.org.

Cosby’s first show, scheduled for Friday, July 25, sold out on the first day tickets went on sale and hundreds of calls and ticket requests helped make the decision to add another performance.

“The opportunity to have a comedian, like Bill Cosby, who is a top level person in his field is very exciting,” said Jim Clark, general manager of the Lutcher Theater for the Performing Arts. “It’s a big deal, especially for people to be able to see him in a venue like the Lutcher Theater.”

After the first show sold out in less than 24 hours, Clark said a survey was sent out to people who had expressed interest in purchasing tickets to the Cosby event but were unable to do so.

“We received approximately 400 responses from people who said they would purchase tickets, if we added a second show,” Clark continued. “So, we arranged another show and have already sold over half of the venue for it. We are hoping we get another sell out.”

A limited number of balcony tickets for Cosby’s July 25 performance were released on Monday and may still be available. Call the Lutcher Theater for the Performing Arts at 409-886-5535 for more information.
