When Andrew Makepeace Ladd III accepts an invitation to Melissa Gardner’s birthday party, and Melissa writes him a thank-you note, a romantic friendship and correspondence destined to last for nearly 50 years is born. Both from affluent, East Coast families, the friends communicate with each other through boarding school experiences, European adventures, failed marriages, and the ups and downs of career. Over the course of their lives, Andy and Melissa’s relationship goes through many changes, but they remain each other’s most trusted confidante, and are “true lovers” on paper, if not in reality. A hit Broadway show that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for drama, Love Letters is a tender, tragi-comic and nuanced examination of shared nostalgia, missed opportunities and the deep closeness of lifelong, complicated friends.
