Helene Hanff adapt James Roose-Evans Price: $14.99

This wonderful show is a dramatization of business letters between a young struggling writer in New York and an antiquarian book store in London

In a sense, these are also love letters

They are about the love of good literature

The play takes place over a twenty year period, beginning in 1949 when Helene Hanff (played on Broadway by Ellen Burstyn) first writes Marks & Co. and ends in 1969 with the death of Frank Doel, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helen who has shown her gratitude through the years by sending "care packages" to the staff of Marks & Co

"Charming, charming, charming.... A gently touching hands across the sea chronicle, sentimental in the best sense of the word" ~ N.Y. Daily News

"Warm, moving, civilized. A wonderful evening on Broadway" ~ WABC TV
