Broadway is about to get a big star jolt from A.R. Gurney’s chestnut, “Love Letters.” James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and her theater producer husband Fred Zollo will stage an all star roundabout in the two hander beginning in September. The stars are Alan Alda, Brian Dennehy and Mia Farrow, Candice Bergen, Carol Burnett, Anjelica Huston, Stacy Keach, Diana Rigg and Martin Sheen. Not bad! Plus, the very talented Greg Mosher is directing. And lighting is by our old pal, Tony winner Peter Kaczorowski. Hot ticket!
PS But someone had better do something about Times Square quick or no one’s going to any Broadway shows. The place is overrun, it’s filthy, there’s tons of weird unnecessary construction. Get rid of the pedestrian mall. It’s so ironic– the seediness is returning all on its own!
