Vintage Players presents "Love Letters," the highly acclaimed play by A. R. Gurney, performed by John Basinger and Carolyn Kirsch, at Oddfellows Playhouse on December 11, 2016 at 3 pm. The play traces the lifelong correspondence of two people destined to maintain their contact with one another on a sometimes joyous, sometimes bittersweet journey.
John Basinger and Carolyn Kirsch are both highly experienced professional actors and well-known throughout the Northeast. Miss Kirsch had a long and varied career in New York theatre, performed in 15 Broadway shows over a 21 year period, working primarily for the director/choreographers Bob Fosse and Michael Bennett. She was a member of the original company of A Chorus Line. She has been an active director, performer, arts advocate, and arts educator in Connecticut for the past 30 years.
John Basinger traveled throughout the world in his work for the National Theater of the Deaf, has appeared on Broadway, and was King Lear in ArtFarm’s 2014 Middletown production of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy. Basinger is perhaps best known for memorizing all twelve books of John Milton’s epic 17th-century poem, “Paradise Lost” and performing them at venues regionally and across the country.
Oddfellows Playhouse is located at 128 Washington Street in Middletown, CT. There will only be one performance of this production. Admission is $25, and all proceeds will benefit the Children's Programs of Oddfellows Playhouse. A reception will be held immediately following the performance.
