The musical based on our friend Elizabeth Spencer’s novella, The Light in the Piazza, is coming to Broadway. Sally and her mother will be there at the preview next weekend.
As the show has traveled from Seattle to Chicago to New York, there’ve been a lot of stories about it. The most recent is a piece on All Things Considered last night. NPR includes some pictures and some songs from the show on the archive pages.
The novella was made into a movie in 1962.
