Frank Langella, will direct and co-star with Elaine May in A. R. Gurney’s Love Letters. May at age 87 won a Tony Award for The Waverly Gallery and just won a lifetime achievement award this weekend from the LA Film Critics. Check as ever Ms. May sent this statement to the critics,“Thank you for my lifetime achievement award. I look forward to many more.”
Rehearsals have already started and tickets will go on sale soon. The show will play at the Acorn Theatre on Theatre Row, which only seats 199 and should begin in March. This should have a very extended run considering the caliber of these two actors and both are hot tickets.
Love Letters last ran on Broadway in 2014, with Mia Farrow and Brian Dennehy, Candice Bergen, and Carol Burnett.
