The first Broadway revival of A.R. Gurney's 1990 Pulitzer Prize finalist Love Letters opens tonight, September 18, at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Gregory Mosher directs the two-character drama, which began previews on September 13.

Mosher's production features a rotating cast of Broadway and Hollywood veterans. Brian Dennehy and Mia Farrow star in the production through October 10. The company will subsequently include Carol Burnett and Brian Dennehy (October 11-November 8), Alan Alda and Candice Bergen (November 8-December 5), Stacy Keach and Diana Rigg (December 6-January 9), and Anjelica Huston and Martin Sheen (January 10-February 1).

Love Letters explores the friendship of rebellious artist Melissa Gardner (Farrow) and straightlaced lawyer-turned-politician Andrew Makepeace Ladd III (Dennehy) through the letters they wrote to each other over the course of 50 years. The production team includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), and Scott Lehrer (sound design).
