Opening Nights | January 2017
By Richard Schultz, January 2017 Issue.
This funny and poignant tale of what could have been details a friendship sustained throughout the years and an affirmation of the adage that your first love is the hardest to forget. Two friends, rebellious Melissa Gardner and straight-arrow Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, have exchanged notes, cards and letters with each other for more than 50 years. Through these messages from second grade and summer vacations to college and well into adulthood, they discover that though they have spent a lifetime physically apart but, perhaps, they are as close spiritually as only true lovers can ever be.
