The Light in the Piazza
BYU Department of Theatre and Media Arts and Interdisciplinary Music Dance Theatre Program present The Light in the Piazza, directed by Scott Eckern (with music direction by Mark Johnson and choreography by Lisa Stoddard). The Light in the Piazza will be playing November 15 – 16, 20 – 23, December 3 – 7, with Saturday matinees on November 16, 23, and December 7, and an ASL interpreted performance on November 21.
In 1953 Italy, an American mother and daughter explore a town square–a piazza filled with art and history and sunlight–when a summer breeze whisks the girl’s hat into the hand of a handsome young Florentine. This encounter sparks an unexpected romance and forces the girl’s mother to reconsider not only her daughter’s future, but her own life’s dreams–and regrets–as well. Featuring a rich musical score by the grandson of legendary composer Richard Rodgers, The Light in the Piazza explores love in its most tender and complicated forms.
