Broadway Review: Living on Love is a Dud

Living on LoveLongacre Theatre

If you are planning a trip to the Great White Way, you can avoid Living on Love. With this play performing at the Longacre Theatre, you might get tempted by discounted tickets or a star-studded cast featuring opera diva Renée Fleming. But save your time and hard-earned money for other shows such as Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night and Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.

The play is a farce that takes place in a glorious Manhattan penthouse owned by the Maestro Vito De Angelis (played by Douglas Sill) and his wife, the opera diva Raquel De Angelis (played by Renée Fleming). The young ghostwriter, Robert Samson (played by Jerry O’Connell) has been attempting for weeks to write the autobiography of the Maestro. To Robert’s frustration, the Maestro is constantly late to interviews or making up stories about his love life. The Maestro even mocks Robert for not having a girlfriend. In fact, the main reason that Robert stays on the project is because he is obsessed with the Maestro’s opera singer wife. Meanwhile, the Maestro feels that he deserves nothing less than Earnest Hemmingway writing his biography.

Welcome to the New StageAgent!

Welcome to the new StageAgent! We really hope you like it.  I created the original concept for StageAgent in a dorm room at Stanford based on the belief that it would be much more efficient to study characters online instead of spending hours at the library.  Soon, this concept of an online theatre character database turned into the first version of StageAgent. I’m proud to say that what started as a tiny passion project has now grown to become the world’s leading theatre resource website. To create the new StageAgent, we combined the latest web technology with expert-written content to revolutionize theatre education and enhance networking opportunities within our community.

With our new site, we hope to improve theatre education, access to performance opportunities, and awareness of shows.  We wrote thousands of pages of new educational content to save you trips to the library. We built tools to make performance opportunities easier to find and to help casting directors quickly find the best talent. We also created new search features to help producers locate the show information they need.  Finally, at StageAgent we support community theatre because we are part of this community and want it to thrive.
