THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA takes place in Italy in the summer of 1953. Margaret Johnson, the wife of an American businessman, i stouring the Tuscan countryside with her daughter, Clara. While sightseeing, Clara - a beautiful, surprisingly childish, young woman - loses her hat in a sudden gust. As if guided by an unseen hand, the hat lands at the feet of Fabrizio Naccarelli, a handsome Florentine, who returns it to Clara. This brief episode, charged with coincidence and fate, sparks an immediate and intense romance between Clara and Fabrizio.

Margaret, extremely protective of her daughter, attempts to keep Clara and Fabrizio apart. As THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA unfolds, a secret is revealed: in addition to cultural differences between the young lovers, Clara is not quite all that she appears. Unable to suppress the truth about her daughter, Margaret is forced to reconsider no only Clara's future, but her own as well.
"The Light in the Piazza" is one of those unanticipated theatrical gems that took Broadway by storm in 2005. Winner of seven Tonys including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Actress in a Musical, this show is a "must see." Rich music and luscious composition highlight this beautiful romance between a young American woman and a handsome Florentine. The romance is opposed by her mother, who eventually reveals a secret about her daughter's past to the young man's father. Book by Craig Lucas, music and lyrics by Adam Guettel, based on the book by Elizabeth Spencer.
