Mr. Gurney's intimate drama gains steadily in power, as life keeps ripping away at the seams of its characters' well-tailored existences.
New York Times
Alan Alda and Candice Bergen star in this witty, revealing and unforgettable exploration of how intimacy can soften the boundaries between friendship and love. The romantic drama, which is the play's first Broadway revival, will feature a rotating cast where the two characters are played by a different celebrity duo every few weeks. Penned by A.R. Guerney, Love Letters was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1990.
The play will be directed by Gregory Mosher, and has the backing of The Trip to Bountiful producer, Nelle Nugent, on its production team. Other stars who have taken their seat on stage include Brian Dennehy, Carole Burnett, and Mia Farrow.
Love Letters is a moving portrait of two people - Melissa and Andrew - who shares their lives through letters and notes written to each other over a period lasting half a decade, never acknowledging the burgeoning possibility that there may be more to their relationship. This epistolary play's narrative progresses as the two characters read through letters that they've written to each other over the years, each heart-felt note revealing more about their shared history and true feelings for the other.
The play has been adapted in Urdu, a production which has been performed in India, the USA and Europe.
