Full Cast & Creative Team for WTF's LIVING ON LOVE, Featuring Anna Chlumsky and Justin Long, Confirmed
Williamstown Theatre Festival Producer Stephen M. Kaus has announced the full cast and creative team of its world premiere Main Stage production, Joe DiPietro's Living on Love. The production will run on the Main Stage from July 16 through July 26.
The company of Living on Love includes Anna Chlumsky (In the Loop, "Veep"), Renée Fleming (Le Nozze di Figaro, La Traviata), Blake Hammond (First Date, Sister Act), Justin Long (WTF's One Slight Hitch, Seminar), Scott Robertson (Cabaret, Damn Yankees), and Douglas Sills (The Scarlet Pimpernel, Little Shop of Horrors). Three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (Nice Work If You Can Get It, Anything Goes) directs.
World-renowned soprano Renée Fleming takes the festival stage as celebrated diva Raquel De Angelis. When her husband, the fiery and egomaniacal Maestro Vito De Angelis, becomes enamored with the lovely young lady hired to ghostwrite his long-delayed autobiography, Raquel retaliates by hiring her very own-and very handsome-ghostwriter to chronicle her life as an opera star. As the young writers try to keep themselves out of the story while churning out chapters, the high-energy-and high-maintenance-power duet threatens to fall out of tune for good. A sparkling comedy from two-time Tony Award winner Joe DiPietro (Nice Work if You Can Get It, Memphis), based on the play Peccadillo by the revered Garson Kanin (Born Yesterday).
The creative team includes Derek McLane (Scenic Design; WTF's Quartermaine's Terms), Michael Krass (Costume Design; WTF's A Midsummer Night's Dream), Peter Kaczorowski (Lighting Design; Tony Award winner, The Producers), Scott Lehrer (Sound Design; WTF's Rodney's Wife), and Music Coordinator Rob Fisher (Anything Goes). The Production Stage Manager is Brandon M. Kahn.
