CLAIRE TOW STAGE IN THE C. NEWTON SCHENCK III THEATRE
Theatrical legends Brian Dennehy and Mia Farrow return to Long Wharf Theatre in A.R. Gurney’s poignant and enduring play. From valentines and thank-you notes exchanged as children, Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner become lifelong confidantes. Through sharing fifty years of joys and disappointments large and small, they forge an intimacy that transcends distance and time. As circumstances pull them apart, their letters—often hilarious and always eloquent—always bring them back together. “With this duo… the play emerges as sweet, elegant and touching, as two lives come into vibrant focus,” said the New York Daily News.
