Keir Dullea And Mia Dillon Star In LOVE LETTERS
Real life sweethearts, Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey) and Mia Dillon (TONY award nominee, Crimes of the Heart) bring A. R. Gurney's Love Letters to life in this one of a kind performance. As 'Melissa' and 'Andy,' these two stunning artists bring complexity and humanity to Gurney's timeless play about love, friendship, loss, challenges and the art of letter writing. Underscoring their love for New York's theatre scene, Ms. Dillon and Mr. Dullea share this production as a benefit for the award winning Articulate Theatre Company.

"They have always been a part of the New York theatre scene, and have always supported Articulate. We can't thank them enough."
