Combining video, movement, puppetry, live music and scripted performance, Love Letter uses 3LD's floor-to-ceiling windows to not only frame the proceedings, but also to invert the play-going perspective so that the interior world of the play mostly unfolds outside in the real world. From this inside-out vantage point, audience members, assisted by sensitive audio and video equipment, see and hear what is happening in the street and in other mental precincts of the characters.
The Love Letter introduces us to a disillusioned young man, played by Arnaud Spanos, on the day he has decided to leave New York for good. Like so many who come here to pursue their dreams, this idealistic dreamer has had a rough time of it. He thinks he has hit rock bottom, but as he sinks deeper into his day of reckoning, an eclectic array of colorful and wonderful New Yorkers show him he has much, much further to go, and what may seem like a downward spiral is nothing of the kind in the rabbit hole that is New York.
Jonathan Solari directs a 51-member ensemble performing in the street while an audience looks on from inside a theatre.
