The Light in the Piazza

Don’t miss the theater production of the Tony award-winning musical The Light in the Piazza by Escondido’s California Center for the Arts, with more than a week-long run of shows to choose from. The charming musical is known for its delightfully romantic score and passionate love story set in Florence during Summer 1953 concerning a surprise relationship and a secret that’s doomed to tear the whirlwind romance apart. It’s a story of love and loss that anyone can relate to and a must watch for any Broadway fanatic.
