Joe DiPietro’s revision of Garson Kanin’s valedictory comedy Peccadillo, which marked the Broadway debut of diva Renée Fleming, will close on Sunday. Staged by Kathleen Marshall and co-starring Douglas Sills, Living On Love opened at the Longacre Theatre close to the deadline for Tony nominations and came away empty-handed, following indifferent notices.
“It has truly been an honor and a joy to bring this hilarious and touching new play to Broadway,” said producers Scott Landis and Philip Morgaman. “It’s disappointing that we weren’t able to find a large enough audience during this overwhelmingly busy time of the Broadway season. We couldn’t be more proud of this amazing cast and creative team who made Living On Love a labor of love. We hope folks will get over to the Longacre to see their fantastic work before the final performance this Sunday.”
It will not be the first to face the reality of a Tony snub. More to come.
