ABOUT THE PLAY

A LIFE-AFFIRMING, DEEPLY EMOTIONAL AND WITTY DRAMA

 

TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is the autobiographical story of Mitch Albom, an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor.

 

Sixteen years after graduation, Mitch happens to catch Morrie’s appearance on a television news program and learns that his old professor is battling Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Mitch is reunited with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life.

FACTS ABOUT THE PLAY

  • Mitch Albom’s original book has sold more than 15 million copies and been translated into 45 languages.

  • "Tuesdays With Morrie" spent 6 years on USA Today's list of Best Sellers

  • Albom found out about his mentor’s illness from seeing him on Nightline with Ted Koppel, who had seen Morrie written up in the Boston Globe.
