The cast of the new comedy, previously seen at Williamstown, MA, features the Broadway debut of opera star and four-time Grammy Award winner Renée Fleming as Raquel De Angelis with Tony Award nominee Douglas Sills as Vito De Angelis, Jerry O'Connell as Robert Samson, two-time Emmy Award nominee Anna Chlumsky as Iris Peabody, Blake Hammond as Bruce and Scott Robertson as Eric.
Three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall directs. (Tony winner DiPietro's new work is based on the play Peccadillo by the late Garson Kanin.)
"The world’s most famous opera singer Renée Fleming plays the world’s most famous opera singer in this hilarious new screwball comedy," according to press notes. "When her larger-than-life maestro husband (Sills) becomes enamored with the lovely young lady (Chlumsky) hired to ghostwrite his largely fictional autobiography, the diva retaliates by hiring her own handsome, young scribe (O'Connell) to chronicle her life as an opera star. Sparks fly, silverware is thrown, and romance blossoms in the most unexpected ways."
The 18-week engagement ends Aug. 2. Over 100 seats will be set aside to be sold for $25 at every performance.Living on Love is produced on Broadway by Scott Landis, Philip Morgaman, Ryan Chang, TNT Dynamite Productions, Just For Laughs Theatricals, Glass Half Full Productions, Stephanie P. McClelland, Alix Ritchie/John Yonover and Gregory Franklin/Phil Kenny .
