Born Harold Rowe Holbrook, Jr. in 1925, Hal was raised in the Midwest by a retired Vaudeville dancer. His mother's entertainment
influence was a strong one, because a young Holbrook enrolled at Denison University in Granville, Ohio to study theater. As
a student of the prestigious school, Holbrook chose the incomparable Mark Twain as the subject of his senior project. The
Twain project, that was essentially a school assignment, turned into a full-time gig, that Holbrook still performs today.
He continued to hone his acting skills and went on to star in classic films of the 60s and 70s, including his most famous
role as Deep Throat in All The President's Men. Holbrook's insight into the character's he plays is obvious when
he takes the stage or screen. Come see for yourself when you buy tickets to one of Holbrook's performances!
