BWW Reviews: TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE at 2ND STORY THEATRE - One from the Heart
by Larry O'Brien - Jun 17, 2016

Either late last winter or early spring, 2nd Story theatre's Artistic Director, Ed Shea, announced that he was looking for less cynicism and revamped the schedule. Out went SPEED THE PLOW and in came CATHOLIC SCHOOL GIRLS. In Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom's adaptation of Tuesdays with Morrie (based Albom's book), Shea has struck the mother lode of positivity.

The book has sold over fourteen million copies and been translated into fourteen languages. Cynical it is not. The question is, how does into translate onto the stage? (more...)
