Joe DiPietro's new Broadway comedy Living on Love will end its run on May 3 after 21 previews and 16 performances at the Longacre Theatre. The production began its run on April 1 after a 2014 engagement at Williamstown Theatre Festival. Kathleen Marshall directs.
Living on Love, inspired by Garson Kanin's play Peccadillo, tells the story of the celebrated diva Raquel De Angelis (opera legend Renée Fleming), who hires a handsome young scribe (Jerry O'Connell) to chronicle her life when her maestro husband, Vito (Douglas Sills), becomes enamored with the young woman (Anna Chlumsky) hired to ghostwrite his mostly fictional autobiography. The company also includes Blake Hammond, Scott Robertson, and Trixie the Pomeranian.
"It has truly been an honor and a joy to bring this hilarious and touching new play to Broadway," said producers Scott Landis and Philip Morgaman. "It’s disappointing that we weren’t able to find a large enough audience during this overwhelmingly busy time of the Broadway season. We couldn’t be more proud of this amazing cast and creative team who made Living on Love a labor of love. We hope folks will get over to the Longacre to see their fantastic work before the final performance this Sunday."
The creative team includes Derek McLane (scenic design), Michael Krass (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Scott Lehrer (sound design), and Rob Fisher (music consultant).
