Love Letters


Love Letters, called "a testimony to the actor's art" by The New York Times, has a long history of star pairings. Clarkson and Batt, two true stage veterans and dear friends, are both New Orleans natives and had previously performed the piece to great acclaim as a benefit for a struggling historic Theatre in their hometown. The evening will be directed again by Tom Cianfichi.

Batt stated, "We had such an amazing experience performing together in New Orleans that Patti and I were hoping for the opportunity to do it again – especially since we were able to help raise funds for such a worthy cause. We are thrilled to be revisiting this gorgeous play for an organization that means so much to all of us in this business, The Actors Fund."

A unique and imaginative theatre piece, Love Letters is made up of letters exchanged over a lifetime between Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences through correspondence. Beginning with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards, Love Letters follows Andy and Melissa through college, marriage and careers. The evening becomes a touching and frequently funny journey between two compelling characters that share a life and love through letters.
