Broadway veteran Barry Bostwick will step into Hal Linden’s shoes for an upcoming performance of “Love Letters” at Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple, 420 N. Washington Ave.

“Barney Miller” star Linden had to bow out of the show — set for Saturday, Feb. 1, at 8 p.m. — because of a scheduling conflict, the cultural center announced today.

Bostwick, who originated the role of Danny Zuko in “Grease” on Broadway and has won Tony and Golden Globes awards, will star opposite “I Dream of Jeannie” actress Barbara Eden.

“Love Letters,” by A.R. Gurney, follows the relationship between two friends who exchange cards and letters for over 50 years, and the love that could be.

Tickets cost $42.50 to $62.50, and guests can tack on a post-show meet-and-greet for $50. For tickets, visit the box office or or call 570-344-1111. Visit for more information.
