TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE

Written by Jeffrey Hatcher &
Mitch Albom
Based on the book by Mitch Albom

Tuesdays with Morrie is the powerful and uplifting play about professor Morrie Schwartz and his former student Mitch Albom, who reunite 16 years after college for one final lesson: The Meaning of Life. Based on the best-selling memoir of all-time, Tuesdays with Morrie is tender yet profound, recounting the two men reuniting as Morrie faces his own mortality. What starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a beautiful lesson in humanity, compassion, and friendship. 

STOMPIN’ AT THE SAVOY   

A WORLD PREMIERE MUSICAL
April 16–May 4

Written by Phaedra Michelle Scott and Alan Govenar
Composition, Arrangement, and Orchestration by Eyal Vilner

Ida Moore has big dreams of becoming a dancer at the Savoy Ballroom in 1930s Harlem, the only dance floor in America where Blacks and Whites could mix. Her skill sharpens when she joins the Lindy Hoppers swing dance team and experiences the world. Ida learns life on the dance floor is far simpler than reality as she is pulled in multiple directions between family, dance, and love in this coming-of-age tale. Inspired by the story of dance legend Norma Miller, Stompin’ at the Savoy brings the Swing Era to life on stage, energized by the beat of the street, jump roping, and the intensity of the Lindy Hop, featuring new arrangements of iconic songs by Ella Fitzgerald, Chick Webb, Benny Goodman, and other Big Band hits.
