That was a beautiful reading. Love Letters has always been one of my favorite plays. I've never heard it read with such character, as I've heard it from you two. Thank you. Thank you.

The residents and guests at Buena Vida, Wellington, FL, very much enjoyed the production of Love Letters that Dennis and Judy performed. It’s wonderful to be able to bring something not only new and different to the community, but meaningful as well. It was a truly great experience for all who attended!

April 2018 - Dress Rehearsals

Here at The Fountains we were fortunate to have Dennis and Judy Helfand perform the play Love Letters for our residents, their families and guests. The event was extraordinary. The acting was remarkable and residents here still share how professional Judy and Dennis performed in this two act play. Having them offer this play in our community allowed our residents to experience LIVE theatre in their comfort of their community. I highly recommend Dennis and Judy to all communities wishing to offer professional entertainment for their residents.

To whom it may concern:

I would highly recommend Dennis and Judy Helfand to be considered to perform "Love Letters" at any type of venue.
They performed at La Posada, a retirement community, on April 7, 2018. The residents enjoyed the play. There were a lot of compliments after the show. They are professionals and communicate well.
I believe "Love Letters" would be appropriate for all age groups.

The performance of “Love Letters” that you two graced the audience with at my residential community theater, Green Valley, Arizona during April, 2018, could not have been better received! As we are an older group of citizens, I think the play itself had some special messages for us. You two did a magnificent job and we greatly appreciated your generosity considering the time and effort you both put in to entertain the residents of La Posada. Sincerely, Marjory

Dennis and Judy were fabulous in “Love Letters” Saturday evening! Thanks so much for the invite, it was an absolute pleasure. Donja 

Kudos to Dennis and Judy! What a memorable performance you two gave us! It brought back some wonderful memories. Chuck 

Bravo, Brava, Bravissimo!!!! Your performance was just beautiful and a visit back in time of precious relationships. My first time seeing " Love Letters.” I loved it!!!! Diane

My friend, Dorothy and I loved the play! I enjoyed the storyline and yes, it is very life-like. Thank you for inviting me. Lorena

The play was wonderful! I overheard people talking at intermission. The writing touches so many universal themes in life, lost love, best friends, petty jealousies and more. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Gordy and I like to discuss what we are watching and what we have seen. We like to analyze and take things apart to see how they work. I think it is a tribute to your acting that we were discussing Melissa and Andy, not Judy and Dennis! Mary Lou

We couldn’t have had a more enjoyable experience. I’m so glad you invited us. You and your wife were wonderful. It would be fun to have a discussion group. Shelley

Judith and Dennis Helfand, or Melissa Gardner and Senator Andrew M. Ladd, III, should we say, received a standing ovation last night for their remarkable Dress Rehearsal Preview performance of the A.R. Gurney's play "Love Letters" at the Arizona Rose Theatre. Burc
