Based on the best-selling memoir by Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie explores the endearing relationship between a busy sports journalist and his former college professor turned mentor, the latter of whom is succumbing to ALS, a debilitating and terminal disease. Rather than wallow in his own sorrow, Morrie welcomes Mitch into his home each Tuesday to share life stories, musings, and anecdotes that begin to alter the way Mitch approaches his own life.
Playgoers settle into their seats in the historic theater building, a former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928 that still houses a majestic Wurlitzer organ and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. Deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings steep the senses in a vintage ambiance, and the intimate scenes unfolding onstage make the space seem much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.
California Theatre of the Performing Arts
A former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928, the California Theatre of the Performing Arts hearkens back to a bygone era with its majestic Wurlitzer organ, which is played during silent-film programs, and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. The theater’s deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings also steep the senses in a vintage ambiance. Thanks to this comforting nostalgia, as well as the heartfelt scenes that unfold onstage, the space seems much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.
