“Showmance” is not a real word; it was invented by people in the acting industry. For those of you not familiar with the term, this is how Steffi DiDomenicantonio’s dictionary defines the word: two co-stars are working together in a show and are playing love interests. Time passes and the onstage feelings get confused for real-life feelings.
Pronounced Dee-doh-men-ee-can-toe-nee-oh, Steffi is a Dora-nominated performer based in Toronto who has acted and sung on stages across North America. She’s your average Italian French Canadian musical theatre–nerd slash Liza Minnelli–lookalike who loves cats, karaoke, eyeliner, sushi, Lady Gaga, and poutine. (All at once or separately and in no particular order.)
