I Loved, I lost, I Made Spaghetti

Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, George Street Playhouse, Asolo Rep

And LaVecchia delivers. She has the chops of a great stand-up comedian…And, let’s not forget. Along with killing the audience…she literally makes spaghetti — from scratch. It’s like watching a high-wire act.

– Marty Fugate, The Observer

…irresistible…LaVecchia remarkably maintains the delicate balance between stand-up comic and dramatic actress with ease, responding to her live audience without ever going too far off recipe (or script). Her timing is impeccable… ‘abbondanza’ of talent. Thanks to her, equal parts warmth and wit subtly flavor the evening and manage to elevate this culinary confessional from light repast to theatrical feast. Buon appetito!

– Michael T. Mooney,

LaVecchia’s performance is truly inspired. LaVecchia is so adept at the imitations of former beaus, you may think there are others are on stage…

– Marina Kennedy,

A seamless performance by Antoinette LaVecchia…a tour de force

– Liz Keill’s review, The Alternative Press

Giulia, played with brilliant depth and sparkle by Antoinette LaVecchia…theatre magic…

– Sherri Rase ,

…a key ingredient to its success was its star Antoinette LaVecchia, whose charisma, poise and versatility made for a dazzling performance.

– Ronni Reich | The Star-Ledger

Antoinette LaVecchia virtually is Ms. Melucci, an earthy, vibrant, sensual woman who cooks like an angel, and is just the right touch of naughty.


A Loren-esque figure, she is irresistible with her frank, sly and often salty humor, her biting mimicry of former lovers and her ability to establish an intimacy with everyone in the theater.

– Charles Paolino, Asbury Park Press

A piping hot plate of laughs!

– NJ

Antoinette LaVecchia is amazing as Giulia in this hilarious one-woman show. She is so believable and genuine in the role, that it’s easy to forget you are watching a play. LaVecchia had the audience eating out of her hand…

Steaming Good…Run, don’t walk to this show (also, don’t go hungry)! This is not a show to be missed.

– Kelly Thompson,

Antoinette LaVecchia displayed boundless charisma and impressive range in a one-woman show about her many romantic loves, and, perhaps her greatest love: food and cooking.

-Ronnie Reich, The Star-Ledger “Top 10 2014 NJ stage perf.”

LaVecchia is the risotto of theatre. Carefully crafted, she makes it easy to lose yourself in the show…Hilarious and a natural fit, LaVecchia comes animated with a wide range of accents perfect for imitating the personas of her boyfriends.

– Paige Malott, Cincinnati

What’s not to love?

– David Lyman, Cincinnati Enquirer

There’s something masterful in the way Antoinette LaVecchia works…It’s breathtaking to watch her move about the kitchen, reel off incredibly funny stories about the men her character has dated, and answer her cell phone to talk to her feisty Italian mother. And she does it all with effortless grace.

– Kirk Sheppard, The Sappy Critic

…a high-wire feat of generosity and risk-taking

– Polly Campbell, Cincinnati Enquirer

LaVecchia delivers an impressive performance, filled with the kind of flavor, care and love that Giulia puts into her food.
