2015 produced a wild variety of snapshots to paste in the theatrical scrapbooks: a male Dolly Levi, a homicidal dimwit slicing carrots, a kidnapper forcing her captives to learn nonsense, a tsunami engulfing a Japanese village, a green-gunked survivor of toxic sludge singing love songs to his blind librarian girlfriend. You know, just another year for regional theater in South Florida.
If the Ali MacGraw-Ryan O’Neal pairing was a marketing stunt to sell the new national tour of Love Letters that kicked off in Fort Lauderdale, the actors pulled a fast one and delivered unassailably nuanced and moving performances that needed no apologies or asterisks.
Interviewing Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal, or trying to, about their upcoming national tour of Love Letters that kicks off in Fort Lauderdale next week seems almost churlishly interfering with a warm reunion of old friends.
