Living on Love to close on Broadway, no longer able to live on just love

The first casualty of a post-Tony Award nominations existence has been claimed.

Living on Love, a screwball comedy about a conductor and an opera star feuding to complete their memoirs first, will play its final performance on Broadway on Sunday, May 3. The show will have played 21 previews and 16 performances at the Longacre Theatre.

Written by Joe DiPietro and directed by Kathleen Marshall, the play starred Renee Fleming, Douglas Sills, Anna Chlumsky, Jerry O’Connell, Blake Hammond, and Scot Robertson.

Living on Love was one of the 12 Broadway shows this season to be completely shut out of the Tony Awards.
