Tuesdays with Morrie

April 8 - May 7, 2006

Bagley Wright Theater

We have all had mentors. Someone older and wiser, who understood you, listened to you when you were young and searching. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, a college professor he knew 16 years before. Morrie is now retired, loves life, adores his family and friends, and suffers from Lou Gehrig’s disease. Mitch is now a sports writer who has an insatiable appetite for work and not much else...until he hears about his old professor's plight on “Nightline.” As Morrie succumbs to his disease, Mitch spends his Tuesdays with Morrie learning about life, love, community, work, family, forgiveness, and the meaning of death. Albom’s autobiographical Tuesdays With Morrie has been on The New York Times best-seller list for seven years, and is now adapted for the stage.
