North Shore Music Theatre presents the New England premiere of I Sent a Letter to My Love. Scored by Grammy Award-winning actress/singer/songwriter Melissa Manchester with a book by Jeffrey Sweet, the production is directed by Pat Birch.
Based on the novel by Bernice Rubens which inspired the 1980 French film Chère Inconnue, the musical tells the story of a middle-aged disabled man who unknowingly begins a lonely hearts correspondence with his own unmarried sister, who takes care of him. As he writes more and more to her, he begins to fall in love, and she, knowing that it is her brother who is writing, discovers a new, tender side to him. But trouble looms when he asks to meet her in person.
