Act II Playhouse Presents Mitch Albom's TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE

Act II Playhouse presents Mitch Albom's Tuesdays with Morrie, on stage this summer in Ambler for three weeks only, July 10-29.

This hilarious and deeply heartfelt adaptation of the best-selling book was written by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom. It's the true story of Albom's life-changing relationship with his former college professor, Morrie Schwartz.

After graduating, Mitch becomes a successful sports journalist and loses track of Morrie. But one night, Mitch catches Morrie on a national news program discussing his battle with Lou Gehrig's Disease. Mitch reconnects with Morrie, and then continues returning to his home for weekly classes on what's important in life.

Director Matt Silva says the story will surprise audiences with its humor. "Of course the play deals with death and dying, but it makes a point not to dwell on that," Silva said "It's actually a quick-paced show with lots of forward momentum. It doesn't get heavy or become a downer. The focus is on moving forward!"

Tickets for Tuesdays with Morrie at Act II Playhouse are $29-$42. Tickets are available online at http://www.act2.org, by calling the Act II box office at (215) 654-0200, or in person at 56 E. Butler Ave. in Ambler.

The two-person cast is made up of Sean Close as Mitch Albom, and Tom Teti as Morrie Schwartz.

"I think that the show is particularly meaningful at this time due to Morrie's theory that we often see ourselves as dissimilar to each other, rather than similar," Silva said. "This play is a startling and profound reminder that at our core, we just want to be loved."
