Fox 29 weather anchor Sue Serio and husband Bill Vargus, a former sportscaster at the station, co-star in "Love Letters" Feb. 29 - March 4 at the Media Theatre for the Performing Arts.
The couple live near the theater and had been impressed with productions there. They were invited to perform together in "Love Letters," which Serio says is "traditionally done by people who are a couple. You basically read the letters people have written to each other over 50 years," she said.
So, nothing to memorize, huh? "Our director said it's a good idea if you are really familiar with the material." Serio says she and Vargas are having fun rehearsing. We asked if the role was putting pressure on Billy V. to be extra-expressive on Valentine's Day. "He does give mushy cards," Serio says of Vargus, who has been doing some acting and voice-over work, as well as writing for Philly2Philly.com.
Would they entertain doing more theater? "If nobody throws tomatoes at us, sure. Definitely."
