Love Letters

FACEBOOK LIVE: Roxy Reads… A. R. Gurney’s LOVE LETTERS

[FacebookLive]
 
7pm February 12
 
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Roxy Regional Theatre invites you to join us on our Facebook page for our “Roxy Reads” series, featuring A. R. Gurney’s unique and imaginative LOVE LETTERS on Friday, February 12 @ 7:00pm.

Read by husband-and-wife team and APSU Theatre and Dance faculty members Sara Anderson and Talon Beeson, LOVE LETTERS is a tender, tragi-comic, and nuanced examination of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends. When Andrew Makepeace Ladd III accepts an invitation to Melissa Gardner’s birthday party, and Melissa writes a thank-you note to ask just why he got her “The Lost Princess of Oz” (answer: she looks like a lost princess), a romantic friendship and correspondence destined to last for almost half a century is born.

A Life in the Theatre

FACEBOOK LIVE: Roxy Reads… David Mamet’s A LIFE IN THE THEATRE

[FacebookLive]
 
7pm January 29
 
While we continue our brief hiatus from films and performances in accordance with Governor Bill Lee’s executive orders limiting gatherings, the Roxy Regional Theatre invites you to join us on our Facebook page for our “Roxy Reads” series, featuring David Mamet’s comedic drama A LIFE IN THE THEATRE on Friday, January 29 @ 7:00pm.

Read by Executive Director Ryan Bowie and Technical Director/Company Member Matthew Combs, A LIFE IN THE THEATRE portrays the changing relationship of John and Robert, two actors — one older and experienced, the other a young up-and-comer — working together in a repertory company. Robert, the older man, feels he has a great deal to teach John, and, as they work together in a series of shows, he passes on his wisdom. John, the novice, hangs on Robert’s every word at first, knowing that he has a lot to learn about the theatre. As time goes on, however, Robert becomes resentful of John’s success, and John, ever more confident, tires of Robert’s cliche advice.
