"Its long-lined melodies often seeming to reach for the heavens, Adam Guettel’s The Light in the Piazza is the most soul-satisfying score written for Broadway so far this century."
The Light in the Piazza follows Margaret Johnson, a wealthy Southern woman, and her daughter Clara as they 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.
Performances will be held outdoors in Tryon, NC's beautiful Rogers Park. COVID-19 precautions will be in place; all members of the cast and crew will be fully vaccinated.
