Earl and Rose Long invite you to Love Letters at the Old Governor’s Mansion on February 13th. Following a welcome by the Long’s to the Mansion, Peggy Sweeney-McDonald and Scott Jefferson, along with director Perry Martin will present A.R. Gurney’s award-winning play, “Love Letters”. The show will benefit Preserve Louisiana.
Lynda and Cliff Normand, long time docents of the Old Governor’s Mansion, will play Earl and Rose Long and will welcome everyone and share tales of the Governors who resided in the Mansion before the play. Sweeney-McDonald and Jefferson first performed Love Letters twenty-five years ago in New Orleans after appearing in the Tennessee Williams play, Summer and Smoke the same year.
In 2012, Jefferson appeared in Meanwhile, Back at Café Du Monde… the popular food monologue show created by Sweeney-McDonald. Jefferson’s food story also appears in the book authored by Sweeney-McDonald which was published in 2012 by Pelican Publishing. They are excited to reunite and reprise their “Love Letter” roles for a special Valentine’s Day performance.
Tickets are $30.00 ($25 for Preserve Louisiana members) and include dessert and champagne during intermission. Limited seating/advanced purchase recommended. For tickets visit the Preserve Louisiana website, preserve-louisiana.org under the events tab on the drop-down menu, or call 225-387-2464.
