LOVE LETTERS TO PLAY FINAL WEEK OF PERFORMANCES
THROUGH SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2014
ON BROADWAY AT THE BROOKS ATKINSON THEATRE
NATIONAL TOUR OF LOVE LETTERS TO LAUNCH IN FALL 2015
“Dark, delicate and quite moving. What ultimately makes the play so haunting is the recognition that the heart of Andy and Melissa’s relationship cannot be captured in the many thousand words they exchange. In its oblique and unaffected way, LOVE LETTERS illustrates this universal truth, that so much of life, probably most of it, is a solitary journey, a letter we write only to ourselves.” – Charles Isherwood, New York Times
“A tender study of thwarted love. The play’s the thing.” – Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal
“A rare work whose emotional richness requires no embellishment in order to become a full-bodied theatrical experience.”- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
