Merc Playhouse presents Love Letters
Veteran television and film stars Ellen Travolta and Jack Bannon are coming to Twisp for a benefit performance of A.R. Gurney's Love Letters to raise money for The Merc Playhouse. Travolta is the oldest of the six Travolta children, and has appeared in numerous films including Grease and Lonely Hearts with her brother, John. Her television credits include Welcome Back Kotter, Happy Days, Joanie loves Chachi and Charles in Charge. Bannon is best known for his role of Donovan on the television show, Lou Grant, and has appeared in numerous series including Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Murder She Wrote, Designing Women, Magyver, St. Elsewhere, and Charlie's Angels. Methow Valley residents may remember Bannon from his role in Visiting Mr. Green at The Merc Playhouse in 2007.
A.R. Gurney's Pulitzer Prize-nominated play, Love Letters, is told through the reading of letters chronicling a lifelong romance and friendship. The play centers on just two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. They sit side by side at tables and read the notes, letters and cards - in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats - that have passed between them throughout their separated lives.
