About this show

TheatreWorks, the nationally acclaimed theater of Silicon Valley presents the Tony Award-winning musical The Light In The Piazza, with book by Pulitzer Prize-nominee Craig Lucas and music and lyrics by Adam Guettel, based on the 1960 novella by Elizabeth Spencer. Beneath the Tuscan sun in 1953, this Broadway hit is the story of a protective American mother vacationing with her radiant but fragile daughter, who falls head over heels for a passionate young Italian. Set to the soaring melodies of what the Chicago Tribune called "the most beautiful score written for the American musical theater in 20 years," all three embark on a life changing journey beyond danger into light. With TheatreWorks Founding Artistic Director Robert Kelley at the helm, The Light In The Piazza is the poignant tale of two extraordinary young people and the overwhelming power of love. Recently named one of the most important musicals of the decade by the New York Times, The Light In The Piazza debuted on Broadway in 2005 and won the Tony Awards for Best Original Score and Best Orchestrations.
