ABOUT THE SHOW
A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 1988, this unique and imaginative theatre piece is comprised of two actors reading letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. Love Letters is an evocative, touching, frequently funny character study in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
Join us for martinis at the bar at both the matinee and evening performances of Love Letters on October 15th.
Lobby and Bar open one hour before show time!
You cannot stage a play more simply than this, and yet it’s about everything in life. First love, loss of opportunities, loss of life, loss of love...It’s a beautiful play, and all you do is speak it.
