The Cabot brings drama to the stage with actor Jamie Farr!

Basketball Coach Jim Valvano once said that there are three things you should do every day: You should learn something, you should laugh and you should be moved to tears. TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE fulfills all three of these requirements.

“Unforgettable! No matter how well you tell the story, the play makes it more vivid, more shattering, more humorous.” — New York Magazine

“Making the language of the book crisper, cleverer…aphoristic wisdom, expressed with gallows wit.” — The New York Times

“A touching, life-affirming, deeply emotional drama with a generous dose of humor.” — The New York Daily News

“I was unprepared for how moving and powerful TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE turned out to be… On this ground, the flowers of humanity grow.” — The New York Post

“You’ll Laugh! You’ll Cry!” — Variety

TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is the autobiographical story of Mitch Albom, 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 is reunited with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life. Recently, Jamie Farr, best known as Corporal Max Klinger on the beloved television series M*A*S*H* appeared in the play in several Canadian cities to rave reviews. Now, a new production using the same director, Ron Ulrich, and co-star Rejean Cornoyer, is touring North America starring Jamie Farr.
