Mitch Albom says he joked with a friend, "If I ever write a musical, I'll write one about hockey!"

It was a joke for years, until the day he decided to see what he might come up with.

I talked here with Albom about "Hockey the Musical", coming to the Wharton Center stage in East Lansing next month. Whether you're a rabid hockey fan or know little about the sport aside from the ice, sticks and penalty box, you'll enjoy this show. Even if you think you don't like musicals.

Get your tickets here for the show.
