Quirky, Romantic, Great acting, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if J. Smith-Cameron is a phenomenal actress, but it's her masterful skill at reacting that places her above and beyond.

Don't see it if Two-hander with no movement or scenery changing. It's basically a reading.

Great writing, Enchanting, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if You love crisp, smart dialogue. Funny and poignant take on a lifetime personal relationship.

Don't see it if You want full production with bells and whistles. This feels a bit “ behind the scenes” as actors read script. Cameron Smith/Garber are fab.

Intelligent, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if you would enjoy spending an evening with two people you come to care about as you follow their life-long friendship through their letters.

Don't see it if you think you don’t need to see yet another production of Love Letters (but this is the third I have seen, and the best).
