"Love Letters" at The Beacon

A. R. Gurney’s Broadway hit presents an imaginative unrehearsed piece in which two actors read notes, letters, and cards passed between a couple attempting to keep in touch romantically while physically growing apart. Emmy-award winning daytime producer Thomas DeVilliars directs an impossible love affair in Beacon. Takes place Friday through Sunday.

"Romeo & Juliet" at Bard's Fischer Center

Director Pavol Liska’s decision to call people at random, asking them to recount the well-known tragic love story, reveals how comically little we know about Shakespeare. Performed by members of Nature Theatre of Oklahoma at Bard’s Fischer Center, the play contains eight different interpretations of the romantic original. Friday through Sunday.
