The Light in the Piazza

June 7 – 23, 2013

Directed  by TOM MARTINI

In this elegant story of courtship and of conflict of conscience, set in Tuscany in 1953, Clara, a young, childlike American woman, falls in love with a handsome Florentine, Fabrizio. Clara travels with her mother, middle-aged, middle-class Mrs. Johnson, who opposes the affair for reasons gradually revealed as the story unfolds. Torn between protecting her vulnerable daughter and allowing her the chance for happiness, Mrs. Johnson lovingly navigates her internal conflict. Adam Guettel, grandson of Richard Rodgers, gives us convincingly ordinary characters who find extraordinary self-expression in song. Infusing the tired old woes and wonders of midlife disenchantment and autumnal romance with fresh shadow and light, The Light in the Piazza celebrates young love with sumptuous melodies and richly intelligent lyrics.
