Of Mice and Men, one of the greatest and most enduring American classics, has not been seen on Broadway in 40 years. Adapted from his own classic novel, John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men is an essential adventure, an inspirational portrait of the American spirit and a heartbreaking testament to the bonds of friendship.
