Love Letters

It contains only two actors, two chairs, two piles of love letters, and a single table—but A.R. Gurney’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated Love Letters accomplishes so much. Brian Dennehy of First Blood fame plays Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, while comic legend Carol Burnett steps into the shoes of his childhood sweetheart, Melissa Gardner. Instead of through scenes, though, the story of their dreams, fears, and defeats unfolds as the two read the postcards and letters they’ve shared over 50 years—starting with him telling her that she looked like a lost princess. The senator and artist touch on the innocence of grade school note-passing, the conflicting emotions of young adulthood, and the faint pain of romance never quite expressed as they chronicle lives spent apart but always together.

A favorite of busy A-listers, as it calls for the ability to channel tremendous emotion with a subtle touch but doesn’t require lengthy preparation or Klingon-makeup applications, Love Letters brings world-famous talent to Broadway. Under the eye of Gregory Mosher, an accomplished director with nearly 200 Broadway and West End plays under his belt, the work makes a somewhat antiquated communication method feel fresh in an age of digital correspondence. Theatre Mania’s Zachary Stewart was deeply moved by this staging, saying “You may think you’ve seen this play, but you’ll see it in a whole new way with this month’s cast. Burnett brings it, and remarkably so. She is arguably one of the greatest living comediennes. In Love Letters, she also reminds us that she is a skilled dramatic actor.”
