A One Woman Powerhouse
Antoinette LaVecchia, theatre, film, and TV actress, received the 2012 BroadwayWorld.com CT Theater Best Actress Award for her starring role in I LOVED, I LOST, I MADE SPAGHETTI.
The play, directed by Rob Ruggiero, is based on the memoir by Giulia Melucci and adapted by Jacques Lamarre. LaVecchia stated about her role, “I feel like I was destined to be in this play. In all the plays I’ve ever done, no play has asked me just to be myself more than this one.” Sylviane Gold of the New York Times reports, “Ms. LaVecchia connects instantly with the audience, and she makes Giulia utterly irresistible.”
