Tuesdays With Morrie, the Jeffrey Hatcher-Mitch Albom stage version of the smash best-selling memoir by Mitch Albom, will make its Off-Broadway debut Nov. 19, following previews, at the Minetta Lane Theatre, according to published reports.

The story of a sportswriter who reconnects with his terminally ill former professor was a bestseller for Albom, a popular sports columnist for The Detroit Free Press. The book was previously made into a TV movie with Hank Azaria and Jack Lemmon.

The two-character play had a staging in Vassar College's New York Stage & Film summer season, June 21-July 6, and Playbill On-Line previously reported commercial producers were attached to the project for a move to Manhattan. Jon Tenney and Alvin Epstein repeat their summer roles for the fall Off-Broadway premiere.

Variety reported the producers as David Singer, Elizabeth I. McCann and Joey Parnes.
