Full Biography

Living On Love


Living On Love on BroadwayBased on Garson Kanin's PECCADILLO and starring world-renowned opera singer Renée Fleming begins limited Broadway engagement April 1, 2015.

The world's most famous opera singer (Fleming) plays the world's most famous opera singer in this hilarious new screwball comedy. When her larger-than-life maestro husband (Douglas Sills) becomes enamored with the lovely young lady (Anna Chlumsky) hired to ghostwrite his largely fictional autobiography, the diva 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.

LIVING ON LOVE is adapted by two-time Tony® Award winner Joe DiPietro and directed by three-time Tony® Award winner Kathleen Marshall.
