THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA
THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA
Book by CRAIG LUCAS
Music and Lyrics by ADAM GUETTEL
Based on a novella by Elizabeth Spencer, the story is set in the 1950s and revolves around Margaret Johnson, a wealthy Southern woman and her daughter, Clara, a beautiful and surprisingly childlike young woman who spend a summer together in Italy. When Clara falls in love with a young Italian man, Margaret is forced to reconsider not only Clara’s future, but her own deep-seated hopes and regrets as well. Nominated for eleven and won six 2005 Tony Awards, including best original score.
“The most intensely romantic score of any musical since West Side Story.” -The New York Times.
