WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The highly acclaimed national touring production of Tuesdays With Morrie is coming home to the Sabes JCC in St. Louis Park. Based on the best-selling book by Mitch Albom and adapted for the stage by Albom and renowned playwright and screenwriter Jeffrey Hatcher, Tuesdays With Morrie is the hilarious and heartwarming story of the relationship between sportswriter Mitch, 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 reconnects with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a delightful and moving last class in the meaning of life.
