ALL YOU NEED IS A HEART AND A PEN: Love is in the air in West Hartford tonight with "Love Letters" on stage at Playhouse on Park. The show tells the story of a life-long correspondence of a dignified, stodgy lawyer and a lively, unstable artist. Their bittersweet relationship gradually unfolds from what is written (and what's left unsaid) in their letters. Tickets for the show, which run through this weekend, are $20-$32.50.
