A.R. Gurney’s “Love Letters” starring Barbara Eden & Barry Bostwick

Scranton Cultural Center presents

Barbara Eden & Barry Bostwick starring in

Reserved Seating | Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Theatre | $62.50-$42.50, $50.00 Post Show Meet and Greet Upgrade

America’s long running hit play – pulling your heart strings – and now starring Two Iconic Stars – Barbara Eden and Barry Bostwick! It’s the late A.R. Gurney’s most famous Broadway production – holding audiences spellbound throughout the USA. It’s a sure-fire sentimental evening of star power and supreme acting. Theatres all over America have been thrilling to TV’s I Dream Of Jeannie and the ‘Rocky Horrow Show’s’ Barry Bostiwck – live onstage. Barbara and Barry deliver a once-in-a-lifetime evening. Don’t miss it!

A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters is a funny and emotional portrait about the powerful connection of love. Two friends, rebellious Melissa Gardner and straight-arrow Andrew Makepeace Ladd III have exchanged notes, cards and letters with each other for over 50 years. From second grade, through summer vacations, to college, and well into adulthood, they have spent a lifetime discussing their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, and victories and defeats. But long after the letters are done, the real question remains: Have they made the right choices or is the love of their life only a letter away?
