When does opera diva Renee Fleming sleep? Probably never.
And now she is about to tackle something just a bit different: This summer, Fleming will appear in a play at the prestigious Williamstown Theatre Festival in Mass., which is often a springboard for future Broadway productions. She will star in “Living on Love” ((July 16 – July 26), by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro (adapted from Garson Kanin’s play “Peccadillo”), to be directed by Kathleen Marshall.
The plot of this comedy Celebrated diva Rachel DeAngelis (played by Fleming) takes action when her husband, the fiery and egomaniacal Maestro Vito DeAngelis, becomes enamored with the lovely young lady hired to ghostwrite his long-delayed autobiography. Rachel retaliates by hiring her very own – and very handsome – ghostwriter to chronicle her life as an opera star. As the young writers try to keep themselves out of the story while churning out chapters, the high-energy – and high-maintenance – power duet threatens to fall out of tune for good.
