“We loved having David here when he directed It Shoulda Been You (which premiered at the Playhouse prior to its current Broadway run), and I am thrilled and grateful he is returning for this very special performance. I have long wanted to have Debra at George Street, and I am thrilled she will be joining us,” said Saint in an earlier statement.

Love Letters, according to the Playhouse, is the "disarmingly funny and unforgettable tale of Andrew and Melissa, childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins simply enough with thank you notes and postcards, but grows into shared confidences as they separately pursue marriage and careers. This very intimate production is an evocative, touching and frequently funny pair of stories in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down."

A revival of Love Letters, with a rotating cast, played Broadway this past season.

Seats are priced at $50; a special premium ticket is also available, priced at $100, which includes a post-performance reception with the artists. Tickets may be purchased by contacting the George Street Playhouse Box Office, (732) 246-7717 or visiting www.GSPonline.org. George Street Playhouse is located at 9 Livingston Avenue.
