Best theater performance to make an entire audience sniffle: Tuesdays with Morrie

I'm not a big crier, but when I went to see American Stage's production of uesdays with Morrie, I reminded myself to think happy thoughts. It was useless. Tuesdays is about a reporter who visits his former professor every week. Sounds nice until you find out that teach has Lou Gehrig's disease. Fortunately, my nose-blowing went unnoticed in the cacophony of sniffles and the manly variety of throat-clearing that covers for crying. (Pictured: Michael Edwards and Chaz Mena in Tuesdays with Morrie.)
