On April 1, 2015, soprano Renée Fleming will take up residency at the Longacre Theatre in Manhattan to perform in Joe DiPrieto's new comedic play Living on Love. The official website features a hilarious photo of the entire cast from the play. The photographer? Andrew Eccles. Fans of Ms. Fleming will recognize his name from her CD covers and liner notes for the Decca Classics label. The British-born photographer worked with Annie Leibovitz, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Steven Meisel before going solo in his career. He now shoots celebrities, models, athletes, politicians, musicians, and dancers. Get tickets to the performances of Living on Love by clicking here and visit the official website to learn more about the production here. A biography of photographer Andrew Eccles and memorable photos he has taken of Renée Fleming, as well as the full-page New York Times ad for the play, after the jump.

Stage Partners: Fleming and Sills
"The world's most famous opera singer Renée Fleming plays the world's most famous opera singer in the hilarious new screwball comedy Living On Love. Direct from a smash-hit run at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, this glamorous romp through the world of music, marriage and celebrity is written by two-time Tony Award® winner Joe DiPietro (Nice Work If You Can Get It), adapted from a work by Garson Kanin (Born Yesterday) and directed by three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes). Fleming stars alongside Tony nominee Douglas SIlls (The Scarlet Pimpernel) and Emmy® nominee Anna Chlumsky (Veep). When a demanding diva (Fleming) discovers that her larger-than-life maestro husband (Sills) has become enamored with the lovely young lady (Chlumsky) hired to ghostwrite his largely fictional autobiography, she retaliates by hiring her own handsome, young scribe to chronicle her life as an opera star. Sparks fly, silverware is thrown and romance blossoms in the most unexpected ways." [Source

Andrew Eccles was born in England, grew up in Toronto, moved to Hawaii, went to high school in Vancouver, and spent time in Texas all before settling in New York City in 1983. It was there that he decided to pursue photography seriously. Within 3 months Andrew landed an apprenticeship with Annie Leibovitz lasting three years. That was followed by brief stints working alongside Robert Mapplethorpe and Steven Meisel. In 1987, Andrew became a professional photographer himself and has been shooting celebrities, models, athletes, politicians, musicians, and dancers ever since. Over the past 25 years his work has appeared on the covers of countless magazines worldwide. He has also created an abundance of advertising images for the film, television, Broadway, and music Industries for use domestically and abroad. Throughout his career Andrew has received numerous awards from both the Society of Publication Designers and Communication Arts. American Photography Magazine named Andrew, “One of the 100 Most Important People in the Industry” in 1998 and his iconic portrait of Robin Williams for the cover of the New York Times Magazine taken in the year 2000 is housed in a time capsule installed behind the Museum of Natural History in New York City, not to be reopened until the year 3000. Andrew’s first book Ailey Ascending, published in 2008, celebrates The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s 50th Anniversary and solidified Andrew’s longtime collaboration with the Company. Andrew’s other longstanding relationship merges photography with his obsession for Ice Hockey. He has been photographing the New York Rangers for the past 13 years. However, no subject matter compares to Andrew’s favorite of all and love of his life, daughter Isabel.
