LOVE LETTERS Brings the Romance to Kelsey Theatre
There's a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day this year and it happens on stage at Mercer County Community College's (MCCC's) Kelsey Theatre. Join M&M Stage Productions as they present "Love Letters," A.R. Gurney's 1988 Pulitzer Prize-nominated play, for one weekend only. Dates and show times are Friday, Feb. 8 and Saturday, Feb. 9 at 8 p.m., and Sunday, February 10 at 2 p.m.
Kelsey Theatre is located on MCCC's West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The community is invited to an opening night reception with the cast and crew on Feb. 8.
This touching story follows the "near misses" of a relationship throughout a lifetime of letters. From summer camps and boarding schools, through college, war, careers and romance, the journey between the free-spirited artist, Melissa Gardner, and dutiful lawyer Andrew Makepeace Ladd is recounted through the letters they write to each other about their dreams, ambitions, victories and defeats through five decades of lives lived separately.
The two-member cast stars Vickie Fuller of Yardley, Pa., as Melissa Gardner and Tom Bessellieu of Lawrenceville as Andrew Makepeace Ladd III.
The production team includes Director Mike DiIorio, Producers Mike Almstedt and Mike DiIorio, Assistant Director Makenna Katz, Lighting Designer Chris Ghaffoor, and Sound Designer Mike Almstedt.
