ERNIE – THE PLAY

Pasant Theatre

View the program

Back by popular demand! Returning after last season’s sellout run, Mitch Albom’s hit play brings beloved Hall of Fame broadcaster Ernie Harwell to the stage. “Looong gone,” but never forgotten, Ernie is about to give a moving thank you to grateful Detroit fans. Albom has written a love story of baseball and 20th-century Americana. Ernie witnessed the Depression, World War II, the desegregation of sports – he also called some of the grandest ball game moments. The play features historic baseball footage and unmistakable Harwell calls.

On Opening Night (Wed. August 24th) join us for a pre show VIP meet and greet opportunity with Mitch Albom. A limited number VIP Tickets are available at $70 each. The meet and greet begins at 6:30pm in the Jackson Lounge.
