Tuesdays with Morrie starring Jamie FarrTuesdays with Morrie

“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.

Jamie Farr, best known for playing Max Clinger on the hit show M*A*S*H, stars as Morrie. His acting career began at 11 when he won $2 in a local talent contest. He moved to Southern California where he attended the Pasadena Playhouse of Theatre Arts. He won his first film role as Santini in the MGM production “The Blackboard Jungle”. Jamie carved out a television career appearing as a regular on “The Red Skelton Show” before serving two years in the US Army where he was stationed in Korea. After discharge, he appeared as a regular on “The Danny Kaye Show” as well as CBS’s “the Chicago Teddy Bears”. Over the years Jamie has co-starred with Andy Griffith, Dick Van Dyke, Bob Hope, Milton Berle, Dean Martin and Lucille Ball.

During M*A*S*H*’s first season, Jamie was hired to play a phony transvestite bucking for a Section 8 Discharge. Something about the chomped cigar under the black veil and hairy legs under the flowing skirt immediately clicked with the producers and audience, and Max Clinger was born.  The weekly show ran for 13 years and was voted TV Guide’s Best TV show of all time. The final two-hour episode aired on February 28, 1983 drawing a record 125 million viewers.

Réjean Cournoyer, performing in the role of Mitch, is a French-Canadian actor born in Nova Scotia, partially raised in Québec, and has lived and worked across Canada. Selected theatre credits include Captain Von Trapp in "The Sound of Music", Javert in "Les Misérables", Sweeney Todd in "Sweeney Todd", Bill Sykes in "Oliver!", Ross in "A Few Good Men", Mr. Darcy in "Pride and Prejudice", and The Beast in "Beauty and the Beast".  Réjean has several nominations for various theatre awards in his home country, and one Actra Award for his work in the feature film, "The Event".

Tickets for this Patron Series performance go on sale to the public on September 10, 2017.
