The Associates of the Idyllwild Arts Foundation are presenting “Love Letters,” a play by A.R. Gurney starring Wendie Malick and Dan Lauria. This one-night-only production is a fundraiser for the Scholarship Fund of the Idyllwild Arts Academy and Summer Program.
Malick and Lauria are well recognized for their portrayal of memorable characters on the stage, in motion pictures, and on television. Wendie Malick, Golden Globe- and Emmy-nominated actor, is best recognized for her recent roles in “Mom,” “Hot in Cleveland” and “Just Shoot Me!”
Stage credits include “Big Night” that had its world premiere in September at the Kirk Douglas Theater in Culver City.
Lauria played the role of Vince Lombardi in the Broadway hit “Lombardi.” Lauria’s roles include the film “Independence Day” and Jack Arnold in “The Wonder Years” television series.
Finalist for 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, “Love Letters” tells the story of two star-crossed lovers who exchanged correspondences over a span of 50 years. With a real-life friendship that spans more than 25 years, the chemistry and timing between Malick and Lauria makes them a perfect duo for this two-person romantic production.
The play starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at the IAF Theatre on campus.
Tickets are $25 and are available at www.associatesofiaf.org or at the door.
