The Group Rep presents an encore weekend pay-per-view of their staged production filmed at the Lonny Chapman Theatre of TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, written by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom, from the book by Mitch Albom directed by L. Flint Esquerra, co-produced by Lloyd Pedersen and Gina Yates. Starring Larry Eisenberg as Morrie and TJ McNeill as Mitch. Limited weekend run. November 26 - 29.
Inspired by true events, and based on the best-selling book, this is the story of accomplished sportswriter, Mitch Albom, who feels that his life is lacking, despite all of his success. When Mitch watches a Nightline broadcast with his lovable featuring former university professor, Morrie Schwartz, he is moved to reconnect with his old mentor, who is valiantly battling ALS. As Mitch and Morrie get reacquainted, they engage in thoughtful conversations about a variety of significant topics, including love, joy and life changes “…what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life.”
