The Las Vegas Little Theatre is reopening making theatre goers very happy. The first performance of this season is Love Letters by A.R. Gurney. Love Letters was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The first performance was in 1988 at the New York Public Library.
The play centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd II who exchange letters, but not marriage vows, in a warm and complicated friendship lasting 50 years. Because they choose others as mates, and live to regret it.
Love Letters has a wistful tone: beneath the sparkle there is sadness and remorse. “This is a play about missed opportunity,” said John Tillinger, who staged it. “They keep missing each other but they’re bound to each other. He doesn’t really realize how much she means to him until she dies.” “She was at the heart of my life,” he laments to her mother.
This play is a unique and imaginative theatre piece which, in the words of the author, “needs no theatre, no lengthy rehearsal, no special set, no memorization of lines, and no commitment from its two actors beyond the night of performance.” The piece is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
This show will feature a different pair of actors performing each weekend of the run!
