About the show

Cherry Lane Theatre presents a play based on the book by Mitch Albom; an old professor is dying of ALS and his former student who returns to visit him every Tuesday for the “last class” of Morrie’s life. More…

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.
