The winner of six Tony awards in 2005, The Light in the Piazza, written by Craig Lucas with music and lyrics by Adam Guettel, is a romantic pop opera that takes place over a summer in Florence. The action revolves around a wealthy Southern woman and her innocent daughter, but the show is known for its adventurous, unconventional score, which makes it ideal fare for Theater Latté Da.

Mar. 14–Apr. 7, Ordway McKnight Theatre, St. Paul, 651-224-4222, ordway.org
