Join us for an exclusive sneak peek of the newest play by Tony and Olivier Award winner Ken Ludwig, directed and introduced by the playwright himself (Crazy For You, Lend Me a Tenor, Baskerville, A Fox On the Fairway). An effervescent and delightful romance, Dear Jack, Dear Louise tells the true story of the courtship of Ludwig’s own parents. It is 1942, and U.S. Army Captain Jacob S. Ludwig, stationed in Oregon, has become pen pals with Louise Rabiner, an aspiring actress in New York City. Through letters, notes, and telegrams, the young Jewish lovers must find their way toward each other—even though they have never met. Don’t miss this concert reading of a hilarious and surprising new play by DC’s own master of comedy.
Starring Tony Award nominees SANTINO FONTANA and LAURA OSNES.
