The Light in the Piazza
Winning six Tony Awards and four Drama Desk Awards when it opened at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre in 2005, The Light in The Piazza is one of the most innovative and exciting new scores to burst upon the New York musical theatre scene in a very long time. The lyrics and the lush, romantic score were written by Adam Guettel, grandson of musical theatre icon, Richard Rodgers.

With a book by Craig Lucas and music and lyrics by Adam Guettel and based on a novella by Winston-Salem writer Elizabeth Spencer, The Light in the Piazza takes place in Italy during the summer of 1953. Margaret Johnson and her beautiful, twenty-six-year-old daughter, Clara, is touring the Tuscan countryside. While sightseeing, Clara meets a good-looking young Italian man, Fabrizio, and quickly embarks on a whirlwind romance with him, despite her mother's stern disapproval.

Margaret, extremely protective of her daughter, attempts to keep Clara and Fabrizio apart, not only because of the cultural differences between the young lovers but also because of a family secret that would be revealed: Clara is not quite all that she appears. Considering whether to inform Fabrizio and his family of the truth about Clara, Margaret realizes that it could possibly spoil her daughter's one true chance for happiness.
