Based on The New York Times best seller, Tuesdays with Morrie, and starring Jamie Farr (Klinger on M*A*S*H). This stage adaption brings the autobiographical story of Mitch Albom, an accomplished journalist and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor, to life.

Sixteen years after graduation, successful journalist Mitch happens to catch his former professor Morrie Schwartz’s appearance on a television news program. As he watches the interview, he 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.

Critics says:
“Jamie Farr, best known as the cross-dressing Klinger from M*A*S*H* is the star and he’s absolutely amazing. Only someone with the lifetime of experience Farr has would know how to make Morrie so real, so funny and yet so profound at the same time…Equally good is Rejean Cournoyer … Looking like a young Tom Hanks and acting full out, Cournoyer gives Farr a good, tough performance to play off, and the combination is killer.” — Richard Ozounian, Toronto Star

“Unforgettable! No matter how well you tell the story, the play makes it more vivid, more shattering, more humorous.” — NY Magazine

“Making the language of the book crisper, cleverer…aphoristic wisdom, expressed with gallows wit.” — NY Times

“A touching, life-affirming, deeply emotional drama with a generous dose of humor.” — NY Daily News

“I was unprepared for how moving and powerful TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE turned out to be…On this ground, the flowers of humanity grow.” — NY Post

“You’ll Laugh! You’ll Cry!” — Variety
