This special event is a joint production between THE ARMONK PLAYERS in collaboration with THE TOWN PLAYERS OF NEW CANAAN.

The play was originally performed at ARMONK PLAYERS last summer. Under the Direction of Pia Haas, this heartfelt production starred the same actors, Eric Schuster and Bruce Apar, who perfected their on-stage chemistry… so necessary for this play.

We are so pleased to revive this production on the Powerhouse Theatre stage!

With over 14 million copies sold, Tuesdays with Morrie stands among the most popular and most read books in the world. And the play doesn't disappoint... bringing this delightful, profound, humorous, entertaining tear-jerker to life.

As Morrie profoundly suggests, when it comes to "that last journey into the great unknown...people want to know what to pack.”

Mitch Albom, a successful sports reporter, is drawn to reconnect with his old sociology professor when he learns on Nightline that Morrie Schwartz has ALS, also called Lou Gehrig’s Disease. What’s initially intended as a one-time visit by Mitch—uncomfortable with Morrie’s “touchy-feely” tendencies and frank mentions of death—grows into recurring meetings, always on Tuesdays, where the pair discuss purpose, regrets, life, and death.

‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ lives up to its reputation as a crowd-pleaser … and continues to dampen cheeks and warm hearts.

ORIGINAL NEW YORK PRODUCTION: produced by David S. Singer, Elizabeth Ireland McCann, Joey Parnes, Amy & Scott Nederlander, Harold Thau, Moira Wilson, Shadowcatcher Entertainment. Originally presented by New York Stage and Film Company and the Powerhouse Theatre at Vassar, 2002.

Tuesdays with Morrie was supported by a playwright’s residency and public staged readings at the 2001 O’Neill National Playwrights Conference of the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, Waterford, CT.
