Breaking news about Sarah Ruhl’s play Dear Elizabeth

On Thursday, June 17, at 8 PM, EDT, none other than Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline will be playing Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell in a livestream and on demand performance of Sarah Ruhl’s play Dear Elizabeth, which is based on Words in Air: The Complete Correspondence Between Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell (Thomas Travisano principal editor). As Travisano writes: “Meryl Streep has always been my dream Elizabeth Bishop and Kevin Kline is also one of my favorite actors, so this is very exciting indeed.”

Information on how to get tickets—with proceeds benefiting the Actors Fund—is in the link below. Tickets purchased before June 15 receive a discount. If you can’t watch when the event goes live, it can be viewed on demand (or re-watched) until 6 PM, June 21. The online performance appears in the streaming series Spotlight on Plays.
