Each character is on a journey and each journey has a different end. We watch Lounello reach his emotional peak in a riveting scene at Schwartz' bedside. The emotional catharsis of his character is complete. It is also the emotional peak for the audience. Richer brings his character to its peak when recalling the death of his mother. Together, the two performers present a near perfect evening in the theater.
Dee Mulford's set design works remarkably well on Curtain Call's limited stage. John Miller's lighting brings a warmth to the production that rounds it out.
"Tuesdays with Morrie" is an opportunity to see theater at its finest. The production runs Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 8, Sunday matinee at 2 p.m., now through July 1. For information, call the box office at 877-7529 or check the Web site at www.curtaincalltheatre.com. ""
