Click here if you’re guilty of dispatching an e-greeting instead of hand-writing a letter to express yourself to your lover. There’s help for people like you. Renowned playwright A.R. Gurney (way ahead of fellow artiste Ani DiFranco as Most Prolific Buffalonian) encourages us to sign, seal, and deliver in Love Letters, a dramatic portrayal of a postage-stamp courtship as revealed through the reading of one couple’s cartes d’amour. Reprising these roles for the third time are Round House Theatre’s omnipresent Artistic Director Jerry Whiddon as Andy, the paramour, and the indelibly sweet Kathryn Kelley as his inamorata, Melissa. For those in need of some serious lick-and-seal tutelage, Gurney’s play is an important step in the preservation of the written woo, not to mention a classic of the American theater. At 7:30 p.m. at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, 17th & New York Ave. NW. $15. (202) 639-1770. (AF)
