In the FOXlight: Carol Burnett is Back on Broadway in 'Love Letters'

Michael Tammero sits down with comedy legend Carol Burnett to get the scoop on her latest Broadway show.

 

As anybody who's ever seen "The Carol Burnett Show" can attest, Burnett is a woman of endless talent. And right now, she's taking that talent to Broadway.

The legendary actress and comedienne is currently starring in "Love Letters," a two-character play that chronicles the ups and downs of a lifelong couple through 50 years' worth of their writings, correspondence and love letters.

"It's about a relationship between these two people that starts when they're both five and six years old," she explained to FOX correspondent Michael Tammero. "We're each either reading a letter from our partner, or we're writing a letter to our partner. So we never touch, we never look at each other — but you have to make that chemistry happen."

She's also thrilled to be working alongside actor Brian Dennehy for the third time, lauding him as "one of the greatest actors in the world."
