The Light in the Piazza
Book by Craig Lucas
Music & Lyrics by Adam Guettel
Directed by Enrico Spada
Set in beautiful Florence, Italy, in the 1950s, The Light in the Piazza is the story of love both young and old. A naïve American girl named Clara meets Fabrizio, an unassuming Italian boy. As their love blossoms, Clara and her mother, Margaret, are whisked into what feels like a storybook Tuscan romance of high feeling and raw emotion—but there’s a secret that could spoil everything. In the process, Clara and Margaret come to a new understanding of life, love, and letting go. With a beautiful score by Adam Guettel and a hilarious and heartbreaking book by Craig Lucas, The Light in the Piazza is a modern musical masterpiece.
