The Light in the Piazza, with music and lyrics by Adam Guettel, and a book by Craig Lucas, based on the novella by Elizabeth Spencer, opened at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in April 2005.

Matthew Morrison and Kelli O’Hara also received Tony Award nominations for their performances.
The Light in the Piazza is set in the summer of 1953 and tells the story of a mother and daughter traveling through Italy, the daughter’s romance with a handsome, high-spirited Florentine, and the mother’s determined efforts to keep the two apart.
