Amelia Pedlow Talks About "Dear Jack, Dear Louise" at George Street Playhouse
Amelia Pedlow has looked at life from both sides now, and that includes Ken Ludwig’s play, “Dear Jack, Dear Louise,” in which she is costarring with Bill Army.
This two-hander, based on the real-life experience of Ludwig’s parents, began in previews on October 26 and opens officially on Friday, October 29, 2021.
The dialogue consists of letters exchanged during World War II between a fledgling actress, Louise Rabiner, and a U.S. Army captain, Jack Ludwig, after their fathers, who are friends, decide that their kids might like to meet.
The potential liaison is complicated by the fact that Jack, a doctor, is stationed in Oregon and Louise lives in New York City, and by the realities of wartime service that first keep Jack at his post and then require his deployment overseas.
