A.R. Gurney's "Love Letters," which premiered on Broadway in 1989, tells the story of a lawyer and artist who met in second grade. It brings to life their correspondence over 50 years — chronicling hopes, dreams and disappointments from childhood valentines to the letters and postcards that mark the trials of adulthood, marriage and divorce. The story of their bittersweet relationship gradually unfolds from what was written, to what is between the lines, and what was left unsaid.
The show’s onstage couple is performed by real-life couple Joe and Natalie Carmolli.
Director James Query said the addition of the relationship between Joe and Natalie really makes the production special.
Joe and Natalie have been married for more than 16 years and volunteered to do the readers’ theater production to open Central Park Player’s 2012 season. The couple met because of a shared love of theater.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. at Lakeshore Middle School in Grand Haven. This play contains adult language.
