Living on Love - 2015 - Broadway History , Info & More

Longacre Theatre (Broadway)
220 West 48th Street New York, NY

World-renowned soprano Renee Fleming takes to the stage as celebrated diva Raquel De Angelis. When Vito, her larger-than-life maestro husband, becomes enamored with the lovely young lady hired to ghostwrite his largely fictional autobiography, Raquel retaliates by hiring her own handsome, young scribe to chronicle her life as an opera star. Sparks fly, silverware is thrown, and romance blossoms in the most unexpected ways in this brand new hilarious comedy.

This production, which also starred Ms. Fleming and was directed by Ms. Marshall, was first produced and presented in July 2014 in Williamstown Massachusetts by the Williamstown Theatre Festival (Jenny Gersten, Artistic Director) by special arrangement with Scott Landis, Philip Morgaman, Bob Bartner, Roger Berlind, Just For Laughs Theatricals, Glass Half Full Productions, and TNT DynaMite Productions.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Living on Love

'Living on Love' with Renee Fleming opens on Broadway
8 / 10

'Living With Love' flies by, with nearly as many jokes as there are sparkles on a 'La Bohème' costume Raquel sports...It's not exactly full of surprises, but the light comedic throwback is well executed by the cast and creative team. DiPietro's script takes a kernel of an idea from Garson Kanin's 1985 'Peccadillo' and spins it into something completely different and quite entertaining. Director Kathleen Marshall has a knack for the piece's scale and the quick rhythms of its banter. As Vito De Angelis, Douglas Sills gives a skillful, rangy performance. He's highly entertaining as he lashes out at Robert, primps for Iris or lounges amiably and with the playfulness of someone who knows just how to lead a scherzo...The role is written in such a way that it could be foolproof for Fleming - Raquel is always playing the diva, ready with a song, her speech even taking on a half-sung quality as though it were recitative...But she's a joy to watch when she gets to stick it to diva stereotypes. There's a wonderful self-mocking quality when she walks center stage and talks through the process of one of her famous scenes, telling her costar, 'no one is looking at you, you're the tenor.'

'Living on Love' theater review
5 / 10

Fleming and Sills serve up over-the-top caricatures, while O'Connell and Chlumsky dutifully serve as their pawns and playthings. Fleming occasionally breaks into bits of familiar arias, adding some operatic flavor...The most inspired bit of comedy involves an encore curtain call that mocks the self-indulgent, overextended ones you can still see during revivals of Franco Zeffirelli productions at the Met. Directed with Technicolor flair by Kathleen Marshall...'Living on Love' might have been enjoyable were it not for the complete emptiness of the piece itself. Although reminiscent of the screwball film comedies of the 1930s, it never moves beyond a simple, static scenario.
