Multiple Award Winners Coming to Broadway with ‘Love Letters’

The roster of screen stars coming to Broadway this fall got a lot longer with the announcement of ‘Love Letters,’ opening this September. The bittersweet play tells the story of two lifelong friends through the letters they have written to each other over the course of five decades. There are just two performers (one male and one female). Through the run the play will featureĀ  a revolving cast including Alan Alda, Candice Bergen, Carol Burnett, Brian Dennehy, Mia Farrow, Anjelica Huston, Stacy Keach, Diana Rigg and Martin Sheen.

Love LettersĀ was written by A.R. Gurney and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist. It first played Off-Broadway in 1989, also with a revolving cast (Kathleen Turner and John Rubenstein opened). The show transferred to Broadway later that year starring Colleen Dewhurst and Jason Robards. It has since been translated into 24 languages and performed in 40 countries.
