So amazing and Inspiring
Adam Guettel's music is so uplifting and it just makes your soul cry out...the whole score of this play is just superb and it makes me want to watch the sunrise every day. Highly Highly reccommended!!!!
I was fortunate enough to see this show in October. What a fabulous cast and what beautiful music. I must admit that I skeptical at first, as the ONLY Original Cast Album I've ever re-sold (out of more than 200 in my collection) was Floyd Collins, also by Adam Guettel. I was suspicious of his work, but I now believe he is a GENIUS! I even bought a second copy of Floyd Collins, just to make sure I didn't poo-poo it too early. Back to "Light," though, it is such a beautiful story....and the music now is one of my all time favorites! Every cast member of this show was so talented...and if I lived in or near NY, I would see this again and again! Seeing the show certainly helps, but the music stands on its own, too. If you can't see the show, buy the book or get the iTunes book on tape. The story has much depth and shows a mother's selfless compassion and love for her daughter.
This Score Deserves Ten Stars
The Light in the Piazza is one of the most breath-taking scores ever written for the stage, and having been an actor/director for many years and having sung or staged many musicals, this is a high compliment. From the opening notes of the overture (you can't see the leaves blowing across the Florentine square, but you can hear it in the music) to the last heart-breaking song sung by the astonishing Victoria Clark, you know you're in the presence of a brilliant composer by the name of Adam Guettel (grandson of Richard Rodgers, son of Mary - great genes). The New York Times was correct in saying that it's the most romantic score since West Side Story. The score does demand attention and concentration on the listener's part, but the focus given to it is well worth it, and it pays off by opening your heart and soul like no other musical in this century so far. Get it. Now!
