Tuesdays with Morrie
by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom
Directed by Charles Tweed
January 18 - February 11, 2007
For everyone, there is a special person who made a difference in their life. For sportswriter
Mitch Albom, it is former professor, Morrie Schwartz. After a 16 year separation, the pair
journey down a path in which an older man passes lessons of life on to the younger man,
who will always remember his Tuesdays with Morrie.
CLYDE MARTIN (Morrie Schwartz) has graced the stages of many area theatres. At Jewel Box, he has run the gamut in such shows as Money Matters and Bullshot Crummond to such memorable characters as Norman Thayer in On Golden Pond, Saunders in Lend Me a Tenor, Col. Pickering in My Fair Lady and as Uncle Henry in Summerstock’s The Wizard of Oz last summer. A recipient of the Bill Crawford Memorial Media in the Arts Award, Clyde has been opera host for KCSC 90.1 FM in Edmond since 1969. Retired from the Oklahoma City Library system, he continues to be a very busy working actor. He is the recipient of 4 Gem Awards for Something’s Afoot, Never Too Late, Dial ‘M’ for Murder and Bullshot Crummond.
BARRETT DAVIDSON (Mitch Albom) returns to the Jewel Box Theatre having spent the last 10 years in Los Angeles. While in LA, he enjoyed playing such roles as Willum in The Nerd, Manolo in The Odd Couple (Female Version), and Ellard in
The Foreigner, which earned him a Best Supporting Actor Award. Jewel Box audiences may remember him as Mortimer in The Fantasticks, Sam Weinberg in A Few Good Men, Clifford in Deathtrap and King Philip in The Lion in Winter, for which he won the Best Featured Actor Gem Award. Barrett and his wife, Julia, are currently working on their production company’s first film. He would like to thank her for all her love and support and also thank Chuck Tweed and the Jewel Box Theatre for welcoming them back.
