Must see, Exquisite, Funny, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You love a wonderful story, exquisite acting, and want to leave truly caring for Melissa and Andy. What a love story, it will stay with me.

Don't see it if You don’t enjoy pure acting. There is no set, no movement, just 2 brilliant actors (I saw Brooke Shields and John Slattery).

Delightful, Resonant, Romantic

See it if you love snail mail. This is a must! J.Smith Cameron + Victor Garber were wonderful. The letters exchanged were also so human & full of life

Don't see it if you want more than seeing 2 actors read from letters. It's beautifully delivered and with honest emotions but may not be for everyone.

Resonant, Great writing

See it if Two great actors reading a great work is your jam

Don't see it if you are looking for any sort of staging. This is just the two actors sitting at a table and reading. Read more
