Love Letters is a play by A. R. Gurney that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner (Silver) and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. (George Roth), They sit side by side at tables and read the notes, letters, and cards – in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats – that have passed between them throughout their separated lives.
There is a lot of laughter throughout the play, a sentimental ending, and also a lot of truth about relationships and self. Some are pretty, and some are definitely not. These two actors bring the play to life with incredible interpretation, and the ability to speak volumes by just listening. How they both question, and analyze each letter, note, and card from each other is a fabulous ride that you just must take.
Directed by Mark Corcoran, the play has a perfect pace and genuine quality throughout the entire performance. Both actors are at the top of their game, and the audience let them know last night with a standing ovation. Well Earned, and not gratuitous. Lighting Design by David Palmer/Network Sound was especially effective. Sound Design was perfect. Every word, every vocal nuance heard clear as a bell.
At the present time, productions run one long weekend at Theatre in the Circle. So check out the ticket information provided below and try to see the show if possible. The shows are technically Sold Out, but you never know if a ticket will become available.
Bravo to a spectacular evening with two fabulous actors. A love letter indeed.
