About the Show

“Beautifully captures the eternal allure of Italy… the story wraps itself around your heart.”
-The Chicago Sun-Times
In the summer of 1953, Margaret and her daughter Clara are on a trip to Florence. After a chance meeting, Clara, who has been under the ever-watchful eye of her mother since an accident, falls deeply in love with a handsome local. Margaret is left to make a decision that will determine her daughter’s fate. The Light in the Piazza is a musical that shines a light on truths unsaid.
