The national U.S. tour of Jamie Farr’s Tuesdays with Morrie has been cancelled over issues with some of the Canadian actors’ ability to get visas, but that doesn’t mean Toledo won’t get their Farr fix. The beloved icon and former M*A*S*H* star is headed to the Stranahan Theater to do a Q and A session with TV news anchor Lee Conklin in an event titled An Evening with Jamie. Ticketholders for Tuesdays with Morrie may opt to use their tickets for that show instead or be issued a refund. Otherwise, tickets for the replacement show can be purchased by calling the Stranahan Theater box office. Tickets range from $35-$63. 8pm on Saturday, October 7 at the Stranahan Theater, 4645 Heatherdowns Blvd., 419-381-8851. stranahantheater.org
