Ryan O’Neal and Ali MacGraw, co-stars of the 1970’s classic movie Love Story, star in the uniquely and imaginative reading of A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters, a clever and daring piece that earned him a nomination for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for Drama category. This epistolary-style play centers on the lives of Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. The story stems 50 years of letters between the two that captures the audiences’ imagination through the readings by O’Neal and MacGraw.
The Broward Center for the Performing Arts delivers this ingenious tale of dreams, desires, hope, achievement, disappointment, despair, and tragedy where Melissa and Andy never let distance come between them. Through childhood and age, the couple illustrates their lives to each other in endless letters that also establishes their love, hate, jealousy and lust for one another. The simple set of a table and two chairs is more than enough for Ali O’Neal and Ryan MacGraw to deliver a memorable performance that is an imaginative rollercoaster ride.
Now playing at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts from July 21 – 26, 2015, don’t miss out on this original classic piece.
Tickets start at $30.
