  Tuesdays with Morrie at Sierra Madre Playhouse

Tuesdays with Morrie

Sierra Madre Playhouse
87 W Sierra Madre Blvd Sierra Madre

This play will run in repertory with Stuart Little, the subject of a separate release. 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.

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...A dying septuagenarian college professor with life lessons to impart. A career-obsessed 30something sports reporter in dire need of them. Welcome to Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom's stage adaptation of Albom's international best-seller Tuesdays With Morrie, a chuckles-inducing, crowd-pleasing tear-jerker from Sierra Madre Playhouse."

"...This is a don't miss production of a story you may well have seen or read over time. The dance that Kendall and Eisenberg perform will touch your heart, giving hope for kindness in the world."

Grigware Blogspot - Highly Recommended

"...Under Esquerra's loving direction, both Eisenberg and Kendall render superb performances. Eisenberg really has fun playing Morrie. Morrie is quick witted, physically agile and emotionally committed, even in his moments of great discomfort. He is a born educator and Eisenberg never lets us forget that. Mitch, in reverse, like most of us, is a student, who never stops learning. Kendall makes him ultra thoughtful, supportive, and most importantly, he brings out Mitch's resignation to compromise in order to make Morrie's final days bearable and somewhat happier."

Los Angeles Post-Examiner - Highly Recommended

"...Clearly Morrie was rich in love, wit and charm that carried him gracefully through his horrible disease. That reality deeply impacted Mitch and gave him a whole new way to approach and embrace life. And it is very much that power that makes this show, Tuesdays with Morrieone the most compelling on stage today."

The Fume of Sighs - Recommended

"...TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is quite moving. Mitch and Morrie's visits continue until "the end," so you don't see this play to find out what happens. But you see it for the ideas that it sends you home mulling over. The idea, for example, that attitude determines how one enjoys life, and how one deals with mortality. Or, the thought that a person remains "alive" for as long as her or his words guide someone else's life. And for the realization that there are many types of love, and that we are part of many love stories."
