As a writer, Mitch Albom has almost done it all.
He’s the author of the bestselling memoir Tuesdays with Morrie, as well as the novel The Five People You Meet in Heaven and several others which have sold millions of copies worldwide. He is an award-winning Detroit Free Press columnist, has written for national magazines, and in 2010 received the Red Smith Award for lifetime achievement by the Associated Press Sports Editors. He is a musician and songwriter, and has written five plays, including “Ernie,” which has run for six years in Detroit.
But there is one thing Albom had never written: A musical comedy. About hockey. Until now.
