Letters Aloud

This event has already passed Location: Horchow Auditorium


Back by popular demand, but with a new themed performance for Dallas audiences! Real letters by real people, read by great actors in a two-hour performance. Letters Aloud was founded in 2013 by Paul Morgan Stetler as a way to connect a live audience to famous (and infamous) historical figures through their intimate personal correspondence. Funny and poignant, with live musical accompaniment and a dynamic slideshow, a Letters Aloud evening is guaranteed to inspire! As one fan said, “It’s like literary crack.”

Love Me or Leave Me features letters of loving, longing, and leaving. Take a trip from the romantically sublime to the pathetically ridiculous. From awkward courtship to horrible breakups to loves of a lifetime and lifetimes of love, Letters Aloud has it all in missives that range from steamy to sweet. Hear from the likes of Mark Twain, Frida Kahlo, Charles Bukowski, George Carlin, Virginia Woolf, Napoleon Bonaparte, and a nice kid who grew up to be Slash. “Reality TV’s got nothing on us!”
