Calling all Thespians

I received the following to post:

As has been announced, the much anticipated BCP Production Broadway Revue has been postponed until early September.   However, thanks to the creativity and talent of the membership, the vacated May dates will not leave the BCP Theater in the dark.

Under the direction of Susan Thoms and Dana Applegate, the Broadway Readers’ play Love Letters by A.R. Gurney will be presented on Thursday, May 27 and Friday, May 28 at the BCP Theater.   Curtain will be at 7:00 pm each night and will feature a tasteful collection of music, wine and hors d’oeuvres, in addition to the play itself.

Love Letters presents an emotional, life-long relationship within a fast-paced, clever, sometimes shocking and often humorous reading of excerpts from notes, cards and letters written over a 50 year period between privileged friends Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Channing Gardener, in which they share their hopes, ambitions, dreams and disappointments.

This A. R. Gurney Pulitzer Prize nominated play opened on Broadway in 1989 and over the years a variety of well known actors have played the leading roles, including Jason Robards, Colleen Dewhurst, Stockard Channing, Polly Bergen, Timothy Hutton, Kathleen Turner, Julie Harris, Christopher Reeve, Elizabeth Taylor, James Earl Jones and Lynn Redgrave.

Auditions for the two roles of Andrew and Melissa will be held on Tuesday, April 20 between 4:00 and 7:00 pm, and again on Thursday, April 22 at 12:00 noon at the BCP Theater.   For further information, contact Susan Thoms or Dana Applegate.
