“Living On Love”: My FT Review

The Financial Times has published my review of “Living on Love,” a new comedy with opera star Renee Fleming making her Broadway debut. Bottom line: ‘One can applaud her desire to branch out, even while recognising that there’s a reason most opera stars appear on Broadway in roles that rely more on singing than on comic aplomb. It’s a kick to hear [Fleming’s character] make fun of mezzos, and to listen to her sing snatches of La bohème, but Fleming’s stage persona is too wholesome to make us believe fully her flights of temperament.’
