WAG to open ‘Love Letters’ next week

June 12, 2012

Building on the momentum from its first, full-fledged Eastern Sierra stage production – and the overwhelmingly positive reviews and amount of support it received in the process – the Writers Actors Guild of the Eastern Sierra is forging ahead with its next labor of love.
As with its adaptation of “Tuesdays with Morrie” this past winter, WAG is bringing to local stages a popular, if not beloved, piece of work ripe for yet one more exploration of its highly relatable themes.

As of midnight on Wednesday, 1,300 provisional and absentee ballots still had be counted, so a runoff between Griffiths and Cash is not out of the question, depending on the contents of those outstanding votes.
