Today we cast a spotlight on Buffalo acting legend Jack Hunter, who stars with Adam Yellen in next month’s Jewish Repertory Theatre’s (JRT) production of Tuesdays with Morrie.

In Buffalo, Jack has been presented four Artie Awards as Best Actor. While working in Los Angeles, he starred as Walter in the short film Songbird which premiered at Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival and later screened on the Sundance TV channel.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher runs from February 2-26 at the JCC. Based on the 2006 best-selling memoir, 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.
