FAITH’S LATEST CAREER MOVE: Faith Hope Consolo, chairman of the retail leasing and sales division of Douglas Elliman in New York, is making her off-Broadway debut for one night on April 28 at the Theater Center at 210 West 50th Street in New York.
She will play Luscious Lucille in the play, “My Big Gay Italian Midlife Crisis.” She portrays a trainer in a gym, which is led by a Russell Simmons-type. He invents a health drink in all different flavors and is trying to sell it to a public company, she explained.
“Real estate is Hollywood. It’s my entrance to Hollywood,” said Consolo, who added that it’s not just a walk-on part, but she’s got a lot of lines and there have been a ton of rehearsals. “They’ve always been calling me to do stuff on Bravo and on TV and then an Emmy winner called me to do this appearance,” said Consolo, who figured she’d give acting a try. Tickets are $77 and are available through ticketmaster.com.
The show, which opened Nov. 12 and runs on Thursday nights, stars Anthony J. Wilkinson.
