Tuesdays with Morrie is a play based on thebook written by Mitch Albom. The play is written by both Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom.
The name may ring a bell – it was actually made into a TV movie before, starring Hank Azaria and Jack Lemmon.
It’s a fantastic dramedy, which is both hilarious and emotional. It features Mitch Albom covering his relationship with a former teacher – Morrie – who has ALS. What starts as a brief reconnection turns into a weekly relationship.
This play has received major compliments from the likes of Variety, New York Magazine and New York Daily News – who described it as a touching, life-affirming emotional drama”, adding that it has some good humour to it.
