Overview

Produced and directed by Patrick Fraley and Hillary Huber, recorded at Buzzy’s Recording in Los Angeles, music composed and performed by Noel Webb

The Light in the Piazza takes place in Italy in the summer of 1953. Margaret Johnson and her beautiful, twenty-six-year-old daughter, Clara, are 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.

This is the book on which is based the popular new musical playing at Lincoln Center that has been nominated for eleven Tony Awards and eleven Drama Desk Awards.
