You can’t hang up on someone via a letter. In today’s much too fast-paced world where everything is tweeted and texted or shouted through smart phones, the intimacy between two lovers is lost, the warmth and heartfelt feeling that can only be felt when personally putting a pen to paper has all but faded from the memories of mankind. Evoking a spark of true tenderness from this art form of letter-writing, Love Letters— as a part of the CareFirst Hippodrome Broadway Series — arrives to Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theatre after following a successful and critically acclaimed run on Broadway.
“Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” The line from Erich Segal’s novel popularized by the 1970 film adaptation of Love Story never gets old. 46 years later the dynamic acting duo from the film have reunited— this time on the stage— for a performance of A. R. Gurney’s Love Letters, appearing for just eight performances in the heart of Charm City’s Bromo Arts District at the Hippodrome Theatre.
