The first Broadway revival of A.R. Gurney’s seminal epistolary play has assembled a high-profile cast for a series of limited engagements this fall.
Love Letters remains one of theater’s most enduring romances of the past 25 years, having first opened in New Haven, Connecticut, in November 1988. The show paints a portrait of two friends—Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III—who have exchanged letters for over 50 years, having spent a lifetime discussing their greatest hopes and deepest disappointments.
Directed by Gregory Mosher, Love Letters will feature a rotating ensemble of players who will star in the two-person romance, opening Sept. 18 at the Nederlander Theatre. The cast schedule is as follows:
September 13 — October 10
Brian Dennehy and Mia Farrow
October 11 — November 7
Carol Burnett and Brian Dennehy
November 8 — December 5
Alan Alda and Candice Bergen
December 6 — January 9

The revival will feature scenic design by John Lee Beatty, costumes by Jane Greenwood, and lighting by Peter Kaczorowski. Previews begin September 13.
