I had a 2 for 1 coupon from WBEZ, so dinner was in Evanston at the Stained Glass Bistro. Excellent, but not inexpensive. Libertad across the street is good, but overpriced. Good little steak house/Mexican restaurant next to Village Inn. You can BYOB there.

This was an excellent show! It was both humorous and a tearjerker. Both actors were amazing. I would recommend this show. So glad I saw it.

Excellently written (as in anything by Mitch Albom) and extremely well acted performance. Great for inspiring people to think about life's priorities as well. Easy to follow. Highly recommend.

Wonderful, intimate theater, just the kind of venue to highlight two very accomplished actors.

Description

Tuesdays with Morrie 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 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.
