“Letters From The Front” interweaves actual letters written from both the war and home fronts (from the Revolutionary War to the war in Iraq) into what NBC’s Today show calls “A Wonderful Show!” and the CBS Evening News deems, “A patriotic tribute to the men and women who so bravely serve.” The show has been received well — with cheers, tears and standing ovations wherever it has been performed.
Katharine Hartgrove is played by Kathleen Hogan, and America’s top radio comic Johnny Chastain is played by Tim Ross. It’s not all serious, though, despite the subject matter. Chastain brings irreverent and madcap antics to make Katharine and the audience laugh – at him and ourselves.
Several of the original Tuskegee Airmen will be at the opening night performance. They will also be present at the first Sunday matinee, 2 p.m. Nov. 8.
