Broadway and Hollywood Stars to Perform in New Orleans

New Orleans is getting a dose of Broadway and Hollywood this month when Mad Men's Bryan Batt and Oscar nominee Patricia Clarkson appear at Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux Carré in A.R. Gurney's classic comedy-drama Love Letters.

The play, which follows two people from childhood to adulthood through the notes and letters they exchange throughout their lives, has been a staple of small and large theaters around the world for decades, and has been performed by some of the most popular actors of stage and screen. (Last year alone, Michael Emerson of Lost and Carrie Preston of True Blood did the play in South Carolina, and former Family Ties co-stars Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross performed it in California. Other recent productions have starred Elizabeth Taylor and James Earl Jones, and Sigourney Weaver and Jeff Daniels.) This production, a strictly limited run of two performances on March 18 and March 20, is a benefit for Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux Carré. Both Batt and Clarkson are New Orleans natives.
