Jacó Happenings

The Little Theatre Group, Costa Rica’s oldest English-language community theater troupe, is returning to Jacó with a production at Hotel Club del Mar tomorrow. A.R. Gurney’s “Love Letters” chronicles the relationship between a man and a woman solely through their correspondence. The play tells the story of Andrew Makepeace Ladd (played by Tom Humes) and Melissa Gardner (Lisa DeFuso), whose poignantly funny friendship and ill-fated romance takes them from second grade through adolescence, maturity and into middle age. Admission costs ₡6,000 ($12), and curtain is at 7 p.m. For reservations, call 2643-3194.

For something new and different, check out Vida Asana tomorrow at 2 p.m. for an introduction to Reiki, and learn techniques to provide traditional healing through the hands using the power of nature. Protection and energy-cleansing techniques also will be covered. Level 1 is for the whole family. Reiki master Rosemarie Galluccio will be in charge of the event. The cost is $20. For more information, email or call 2643-7108.
