Loved Love Letters
by Mama Alma

5.0
Have to admit I didn't want to go see this. Spiderman was opening, and I needed something really big to get my mind off my own troubles. Two people reading their love letters out loud sounded like a yawn. But from the very first (Daniel Burnley as a seven year old accepting a birthday party invitation and Karen Howell's saucy retort) I found this to be hilarious, touching, sweet, funny, sad. You name it. It hit all the notes, and was pitch perfect. Just a wonderful piece, beautifully conceived and written, and movingly presented by Burnley, Howell and Thomas. In the end, the one advantage live theater will always have over film is its ability to allow us to be touched and enlivened by other people's lives in real time. I'll continue to go to the theater and catch my films on DVD. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
Postscript by Mama Alma
Sadly, Suzi Bass, who was to have been in another play at Art Station in this time slot, passed away just as Love Letters was closing. The last words of Love Letters are a poignant tribute to a sweet lady too soon taken from her friends. We loved her.
