We discovered this gem of a show at a booking conference in the fall.
The formula is simple. Each show brings together letters to and from the famous, the infamous, and all us regular folk—making history come to life in surprising, inspiring, and hilarious ways.
Being famous is sometimes a burning desire from a young age. And sometimes, it’s an accident. In either case, fame teaches you things—about yourself, about hard work, about enjoyment, about pride, and about your impact on the world and others. From humble beginnings to adoring fans to looking back on achievements and lessons learned, we chart the course of celebrity through the correspondence of luminaries like Stephen King, Andy Warhol, Elvis Presley, Emily Dickinson, Bruce Lee, Marilyn Monroe, and Tom Hanks.
