West Wing co-stars Martin Sheen and Melissa Fitzgerald will take on A.R. Gurney's two-hander Love Letters at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. for three performances only.
The show will play the Terrace Theater September 28–30 in celebration of Recovery Month.
Both Sheen and Fitzgerald are long-time advocates for treatment courts for people in the justice system suffering with substance use and mental health disorders. Fitzgerald has worked for over a decade on Capitol Hill with the advocacy group All Rise fighting for justice reform. The pair initially performed Love Letters virtually for Recovery Month in 2020 as a thank you to public health and public safety professionals working in treatment courts.
“For years, Martin and I have collaborated to advocate for expanding treatment and recovery for people with substance use and mental health disorders in the justice system, and we continue to find resonance in the story of Love Letters. I am excited to finally share it with the public and so happy to do so during Recovery Month," said Fitzgerald.
Tickets go on sale to Kennedy Center Members August 23 and to the general public August 25 via the Kennedy Center website.
