Tuesdays With Morrie Reviews
Washington Post- Highly Recommended
"...There’s plenty of sharp crosstalk and good-natured nagging traded by actors Cody Nickell and Michael Russotto in “Tuesdays With Morrie,” the fact-based tear-jerker now onstage at Theater J. But it’s Russotto’s unspoken moments of unguarded despair that tug at the heartstrings with particular poignancy."

"...Tuesdays with Morrie is a reminder that terrible things sometimes happen to the very best people. But it is also an uplifting declaration that while we all must die, some of us - the Morries and Joels of the world - live with such vibrancy that after we are gone, the best part of us stays alive in everyone and everything we have touched."
MD Theatre Guide- Highly Recommended
"..."Tuesdays with Morrie" lives up to its reputation as a tear-jerking crowd-pleaser. Even the cynical among us may need tissues, not only for the inevitable and somber ending, but for the memories it brings up in those of us who have watched a loved one slowly succumb to disease or regret the moments we wasted with lost friends and family. Superbly acted with impeccable technical design, Theater J's "Tuesdays with Morrie" is a success that won't ruffle extended family's feathers this Thanksgiving and Hanukkah."
Theatre Bloom- Highly Recommended
"...The script itself hews faithfully to its direct source material, Morrie Schwartz's lessons on living. Thus, the play abides with pithy, relevant quotes, yet our favorite occurs when Mitch challenges Morrie to admit that he envies the younger man his youth. Morrie responds that he does not, and elaborates: "The truth is, part of me is every age. I'm a three-year-old, I'm a five-year-old, I'm a thirty-seven-year-old, I'm a fifty-year-old. I've been through all of them, and I know what it's like. I delight in being a child when it's appropriate to be a child. I delight in being a wise old man when it's appropriate to be a wise old man. Think of all I can be! I am every age, up to my own.""
