About The Book
Winner of six Tony Awards
“A wondrous fable that is as simple and complicated as its ineffable subject — love. The Light in the Piazza has ravishing power. It’s as if Guettel were determined to capture the golden light of Tuscany in a bottle. His lyrics are remarkable, and the book, written by Craig Lucas, is written with characteristic empathy and humor. Brilliant.” — Frank Rich
“The Light in the Piazza beautifully captures the eternal allure of Italy… The story wraps itself around your heart.” — Chicago Sun-Times
“Sumptuous and romantic. Guettel’s music and lyrics represent a genuine expense of spirit. The Light in the Piazza offers a complex contemplation of the well-defended emptiness of every man and woman. It doesn’t want theatergoers to feel good; it wants to make them feel deeply. And it does.” — New Yorker
