World renowned opera singer Reneé Fleming has made her Broadway debut with "Living on Love" and her performance has been called simply magnificent. She's not the first opera star to move from an opera house to Broadway. Previously superstars like Ezio Pinza and Paul Szot have also made this transition and ended up with mega hits.
"Living on Love" is a screwball comedy inspired from the play Pecadillo by Garson Kanin. With two acclaimed classical musicians as its main characters, the husband and wife duo are at crossroads not only in their careers but also marriage. Featuring larger than life characters, Joe DiPietro couldn't have chosen a better cast. Set in 1957, Fleming plays an internationally famous opera singer named Raquel De Angelis, who is anything but humble about her success. There is only one person who can match Angelis in her ego and that's her husband Vito De Angelis, played by Douglas Sills. An Italian conductor, he has an even bigger ego, stormier temperament and an exaggerated sense of self-importance.
In beautifully designed costumes by Michael Krass, Raquel De Angelis returns to her Manhattan penthouse from a world tour and finds her husband working with a young biographer, Robert. The writer, who had just started his career, was already insecure and Angelis pushed his buttons even more. Flirting with him in front of Vito, she decides to hire him for her own biography. Unaffected, Vito hires an even younger writer Iris played by the dynamic Anna Chlumsky. The two star personalities compete with each other and have their own fears. The diva fears that age will affect her voice and her husband will look for younger talent, whereas the conductor has his own inhibitions. The story takes an interesting twist from here, as the two young aspiring writers share notes and find out that their "clients" have been lying to each other and the world about a lot of things. As the plot moves forward, Iris and Robert fall for each other.
As these two discover their feelings for one and other, the husband and wife are left on their own. Through a series of events, they end up rediscovering their love that had went missing from their relationship.
Critics have given the play high reviews and called it a quality entertainment. Brilliant acting, superb comedy and wonderful sets, all make it a play worth watching. Living on Love will enjoy an extended run at the Longacre Theatre, so make sure you watch it.
