Set in Florence and Rome in 1953, a young American tourist traveling with her mother meets and falls for a young Italian. The mother opposes the affair for reasons that only gradually become apparent as the musical unfolds. Music and lyrics are by the award-wiinning Adam Guettel, son of composer Mary Rogers and grandson of legendary musical theater composer Richard Rodgers. Based on the novella by Elizabeth Spencer, this musical was initially developed at the Intiman Playhouse in Seattle in 2003 and was further developed at The Goodman Theatre in Chicago in 2004 before moving to Broadway in 2005. “We’re excited to be presenting this rich and sophisticated story,” says co-director Fred Anzevino. Co-director Brenda Didier adds “This intricately classic score is the perfect complement to an Italian love story..".
