“LOVE LETTERS” IS COMING!   Leave a comment

Next Tuesday the touring company of “Love Letters” starring Ali McGraw and Ryan O’Neal will stop for a week at the Broward Center For The Performing Arts. For you youngsters who may not know who they are, 45 years ago they were in one of the biggest hits of the year in the film “Love Story” which had the tag line “Love means never having to say you are sorry”. Both starred in a couple of more hits and then they were sort of low keyed and except for a scandal here and there, on Ryan’s part, were out of the public’s eye.

I can hear the sighs now and the whispers, “They are so old,” as if they haven’t gotten older in the past 45 years and then they will get lost in the play by A.R. Gurney about enduring romance, first loves and second chances through the letters they wrote each other starting at the age of 7. The audience will watch as Andrew (O’Neal) and Melissa (McGraw) talk to each other through their love letters over fifty years and forget the actors as they were but as they are today, which is a good thing.

In any case I am sure the audience is in for a surprise and I will be telling you all about it next week.
