4 Stars ….Irish Mail On Sunday

“It is quite a corker”… Emer O Kelly

“Byrne captures the physical degeneration of Gehrig’s disease to perfection. Murray imbues the character of Albom with compassion, humanity and charm.’ A great review from Culture Northern Ireland

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 programme  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.

It is a heartwarming exploration of friendship and life. It will make you cry, think, feel but above all it will make you laugh.

Tuesdays With Morrie is a phenomenon. The book  topped the best-seller list for several years. It was so successful that a movie and then a play followed. This Irish production of the play was first mounted in the Viking  2012  and it has since enjoyed extraordinary success. In a lengthy tour it has visited the Gaiety Theatre on three separate runs and has played in virtually every major theatre in the country , and in some twice or three times, such is its popularity and impact. We are delighted to welcome back ” by public demand”,  Terry and Andy as Morrie and Mitch to the Viking where it all began.

It’s a performance of total empathy and immersion and comfortably the best piece of acting I’ve seen on the Lyric stage this year. Belfast Telegraph

The exchanges between the two are so truthful, sharp and humorous that it never descends into sentimentality. Mail on Sunday
