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.

Reviews of the Toronto Production:
Jamie Farr… he’s absolutely amazing. Only someone with the lifetime of experience Farr has would know how to make Morrie so real, so funny and yet so profound at the same time. With Farr in control, there’s nothing maudlin on stage, and all of Morrie’s sage observations are couched in a dry wit that Farr delivers brilliantly.
Equally good is Rejean Cournoyer’s Mitch, a guy who’s become so successful in his career, he hasn’t had time to really live. Looking like a young Tom Hanks and acting full out, Cournoyer gives Farr a good, tough performance to play off, and the combination is killer.
Ron Ulrich’s production, … doesn’t put a foot wrong.
