Stars of stage and screen Matthew Broderick and Ellie Kemper perform in support of La Jolla Playhouse.
Love Letters, a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Drama, is a dramatic staged reading comprised of letters exchanged between two friends over a lifetime. Andrew and Melissa, both born into wealth and position, begin their correspondence in childhood with birthday thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Their letters continue through boarding school and college years while they are romantically attached and later through their individual marriages and careers. As the actors read the letters aloud, an evocative, touching, frequently funny tale unfolds in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
