Love Letters | Friday, Feb. 8, 2019—7 PM |Show tickets now on sale!

Lake Cumberland Performing Arts, in partnership with The Center for Rural Development, presents A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters as part of its 2018-19 Center Stage season.

The couple we all loved in the hit TV series “Family Ties, ” Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross, is back together again in A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters.

This production is a tender, tragi-comic, and nuanced examination of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends. It is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew together, went their separate ways but continued to share confidences. It is a touching romance through old fashioned pen and paper. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written.

When Andrew accepts an invitation to Melissa’s birthday party, and Melissa writes a thank-you note, a romantic friendship and correspondence is born that will last more than 50 years! Though their relationship constantly changes, these pen pals remain each other’s most trusted confidantes.  A touching romance through old-fashioned pen and paper, “Love Letters” is a disarmingly funny and unforgettably emotional portrait about the powerful connection of love.

Tickets are now on sale!

Show tickets are $25 (plus fees/taxes); and $15 (plus fees/taxes) for students (pre-school through college).
