Longtime theater director/producer/actor Christopher Arnott says “Good luck getting a ticket” to the World Premiere of Letter from Italy, 1944. He goes on to describe the staging, story, performances, and overall importance of this project from his critical perspective.

His final word: “Given the excitement over this one, and the fact that many will be shut out from seeing it, here’s hoping for further renditions of Letter from Italy, 1944.”
