Mitch Albom, on his graduation day from Brandeis University, promises to stay in touch with his beloved sociology professor, Morrie Schwartz. Mitch gets busy with life and doesn't keep his promise. At first, he's a jazz pianist, but abandons that career when he becomes successful as a sports journalist and sportscaster. One night, he sees Morrie on ABC-TV's Nightline with Ted Koppel. Morrie's joie de vivre in the face of his challenges from Lou Gehrig's Disease captivates the Nightline audience. Mitch re-connects with Morrie, flying in to see him ultimately every Tuesday (hence this play's title). In the time that Morrie has left, he will equip Mitch for his life ahead. Written by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom. Directed by L. Flint Esquerra. Starring Larry Eisenberg and Jackson Kendall.

"Hatcher and Albom are truly gifted playwrights with a reason, rhythm and rhyme in their footsteps. They feed us, the audience, the universe in small doses while growing the characters and expanding their repertoire to include intellectual and comical flights of fancy and sincere, seamless and soaring poetry."

"The actors deliver an emotional story that hardly keeps a dry eye in the house. It's, however, sprinkled with humor and witty lines that are well delivered and welcomed."

"You may not exit Tuesdays With Morrie any wiser than when you entered, but at the very least you will have witnessed two superb performances and shed more than a few well-earned tears. Oh, and don't be surprised if you find yourself phoning a loved one on the drive home."

"This play, from the same titled book by Mitch Albom, and adapted for the stage by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom, is a very charming piece that is a careful blend of comedy, drama, and tragedy, all rolled up in one neat package... These two players hold that performing chemistry that becomes real and honest, thanks to L. Flint Esquerra's stage direction."
