Overview

Two Letters ... And Counting! by Tony Nardi

Although he has won plaudits and awards for work in film, television, and on stage, Tony Nardi's most recent headlines have been earned by his Three Letters, in which he is the only actor who reads letters he has composed and that address a variety of social, cultural, and professional subjects. These Letters are not at all like other dramatic monologues—Spalding Gray's or Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking or Quentin Crisp's The Naked Civil Servant or any other of a very broad genre—because they are not meant to be simply memoirs or epistles. For one thing, they are studded with phrases and sentences in French and Italian rather than being all in English. The Letters also constitute a long, serial J'accuse, where each monologue has been provoked by a distinct experience.
