A Staged Reading
A.R. Gurney’s romantic comedy/drama, “Love Letters” will be performed throughout August and will be accompanied by two readings of Alfred Uhry’s wonderful “Driving Miss Daisy” near month’s end.
Love Letters will feature a number of New Mexico celebrities among the ten different couples who will take on the roles, with (in alphabetic order; click on a name to see that performers photo and bio) former Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish, Playwright and CNM Professor Susan Erickson, Long time UNM theater professor and founder of The Vortex Theater David Richard Jones, Judge Bill Lang, BIG 98.5 morning host Chaz Malibu and KKOB Weekend host Terrie Q Sayre along with their actual spouses. (for all but Terrie Q, where it is her regular on-air sidekick Dan Goss.) They will be joined by an equal number of Albuquerque Theater standouts (also in alpha order) Gene Corbin, Brian Hansen , Jane Hoffman, Heather Lovick-Tolley, Don Moran, Jean Moran, Ninette Mordaunt, Lorri Oliver, Ray Orley, Vern Poitras, Tim Ragsdale, Phil Shortell, and Linda Williams, in the roles of Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III in a play that tells the story of a star-crossed romance from childhood to seniority through the now nearly lost art of written correspondence that went through the US mail between two friends who eventually became lovers.
