MTC’s latest production, Tuesdays with Morrie, is – in a word – beautiful. In these days of economic trials, the protagonist, Morrie, provides a wonderful perspective for our lives. Bob Cohen (Morrie), an MTC actor with many credits, puts on the performance of his career. I told Bob after the show he may as well retire. I can’t imagine what he would do to top that display of acting prowess. Bob’s co-star, Justin Briggs, is brilliant as Morrie’s hard driving, highly ambitious former student, Mitch. We are blessed to have Justin willing to commute from Willits for all the practices and shows. Kudos to Betty Abramson for her artful directing of this incredible piece of theater. Excuse all my superlatives, but this is a show you don’t want to miss.
The show runs through May 24. Call 937-4477 for reservations.
