Hailed by critics ("The perfect bedroom farce…expertly directed…riotously enacted by a five-person ensemble!" –NY Post) ("LOL…The audience is guaranteed to do just that – Laugh Out loud!" -Star Ledger) ("It doesn't get better than this!" –Show Business Weekly) ("A rapid-paced romp with a millennium twist! Hilarious!" –Curtainup.com), ("Behind this very funny theater piece lurk many surprises!" –Huffington Post), You've Got Hate Mail is Van Zandt & Milmore's comic answer to A.R. Gurney's "Love Letters."
Love "bytes" all when an extra-marital affair goes horribly wrong, thanks to a juicy e-mail left sitting on a desktop. The story is told entirely in e-mails from laptop computers, although the play does manage to have an unforgettable chase scene - thanks to Blackberries and iPhones.
