It was last April when I was walking through Act II and this very pretty blonde lady comes running into the building asking for the owner. I introduced myself, ¨Hi, I’m Danny¨. She said ¨Hi, I’m Linda Purl and I have been looking for you!” She was so excited. She told me that she loved what we were doing and wanted to help. Linda came in a few more times and we got to know each other. On one of her visits I was somewhat stressed and asked her for any advice she might have for a theater in its infancy. Linda then told me that she wanted to help because what we were doing was so important to the cultural scene of Vallarta. She said she would call her friend, Gregory, to see if he would help with an idea she had. The next thing I know Linda is telling me that she and her friend Gregory Harrison would like to help. “Harrison? As in Trapper John, MD?” I said incredulously. “Yes,” Linda replied. And right there at that moment LOVE LETTERS came to life in the Main Stage. This is a gift from these two wonderful people, to help us continue to offer you the kind of entertainment you have come to expect. Please show your love for both Gregory and Linda, and also for this theater. This two night event will go far toward insuring the future of Act II Entertainment. Thank You.

LOVE LETTERS The piece is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
Linda Purl is known to audiences as Ashley Pfister, Fonzie’s fiancée from the TV show Happy Days; Charlene Matlock, Andy Griffith’s daughter on Matlock; and more recently from recurring roles on Reckless, opposite Gregory Harrison; on True Blood; on The Office, as Helene Beasley; and on the Golden Globe Award winning series Homeland, as Elizabeth Gaines. She has starred in over 45 made-for-TV movies and countless Broadway shows.
