The Light in the Piazza

Directed by Catherine Gillet
June 10-13, 2021

"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."

-Chicago Tribune

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.

Book by Craig Lucas and music and lyrics by Adam Guettel
