"Hockey - The Musical!" will be making its opening debut tonight for a month-long run at Detroit's City Theatre, and Albom hopes it will bring together theater geeks and sports fans alike.
"Sports and theater don't have to be antithetical to each other," Albom said. "They can actually work [together]."Mitch Albom joined Cynthia Canty to discuss the creation of "Hockey - The Musical!" on Stateside.
