WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Based on the novella by Elizabeth Spencer, The Light in the Piazza is set in the summer of 1953 and tells the musical story of a mother and daughter traveling through Italy, the daughter's romance with a handsome, high-spirited Florentine, and the mother's determined efforts to keep the two apart. The cast is led by Christine Andreas as Margaret Johnson, the protective Southern matron, Elena Shaddow as her beautiful 26-year-old daughter Clara, and David Burnham as Fabrizio Naccarelli, the 20-year old Italian suitor who barely speaks English. With book by Craig Lucas, music and lyrics by Adam Guettel and direction by Bartlett Sher, The Light in the Piazza is the winner of six 2005 Tony Awards, 5 Drama Desk Awards and 2 Outer Critics Circle Awards for its acclaimed New York run.
