"No one forgets their first love...
Andrew Makepeace Ladd III wrote his first letter to Melissa Gardner to tell her she looked like a lost princess. They were both seven years old. For the next fifty years, through personal triumphs and despair, through wars and marriages and children and careers, they poured out the secrets of their hearts to each other. They defied a fate that schemed to keep them apart, and lived-through letters- for the one more meaningful thing, their undying love for each other."

"A First-Class A.R. Gurney Play." -Daily News
I learned about this play yesterday and was so excited as I am heading to NYC in three weeks for a long weekend! I was sad when I saw the news that the show has ended early due to slow ticket sales. The last show for the Broadway play was December 14, 2014.
The play has received great reviews and plans on doing a National Tour in the fall of 2015! I sure hope they do, as I will be first in line to purchase tickets.
