The appealing voice of Tony Award winner and Old Globe favorite Ken Ludwig (Baskerville, Robin Hood!) comes to you in an inventive new form. Dear Jack, Dear Louise is Ludwig’s play about his parents’ courtship during World War II. Now this sweet and personal story is transformed into an unforgettable, immersive theatrical journey that you experience through your own mailbox as you receive the same letters, photos, and telegrams his parents sent each other during the war. Over the course of nine weeks, the Globe mails you the thrill of young love and the joy of human connection through a series of brief correspondences, designed and handcrafted with meticulous period detail.
Conceived by Teresa Sapien at Arena Stage and with materials created by the Properties Department of The Old Globe, Ken Ludwig’s Dear Jack, Dear Louise: Love Letter Experience will begin mailings on June 15, with a second start date of July 1 for those who purchase reservations after June 15. Mailing groups will continue to begin on the 1st and 15th of each month while supplies last.
Only one reservation is needed per household.
