Television stars Barbara Eden ("I Dream of Jeannie") and Hal Linden ("Barney Miller") star in a modern American Classic: Boy meets girl. Girl writes to boy. Girl and boy correspond throughout their lives.
Love Letters, A.R. Gurney's beloved play about two people who grow up and in love with each other's writing, is as much a celebration of the power of the written word as it is to love itself.
Andy and Melissa first "meet" when Melissa writes to invite Andy to her birthday party. Their correspondence continues, growing longer and more familiar as they seek friendship in their respective boarding schools. They sympathize (and amiably bicker) throughout marriages, children, divorces, love affairs and careers that take them down different paths.
