Buffalo Community Theater is pleased to announce the cast of their latest production: Tuesdays With Morrie. The production features the talents of Buffalo native Jason Hettinger as Mitch and Kevin Courtney of Zimmerman as Morrie and is directed by Jack Neveaux. This touching play, adapted from the acclaimed best seller, Tuesdays With Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man, and Lifes Greatest Lesson (1997) is 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 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. Performances of this openhearted and moving story will be held at Buffalo's Discovery Auditorium April 29, and 30 at 7:30PM and May 1 at 2PM. Tickets are available online from the BCT website (bctmn.org) and at the door. There will also be an additional free public presentation at Delano's Senior Center on April 26 at 10AM.
