Directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher, and featuring a Tony-nominated book by Craig Lucas, the 6:30 PM reunion concert will be conducted by original musical director and co-orchestrator Ted Sperling.

Eric and Stacey Mindich are the gala co-chairs; proceeds will support Lincoln Center Theater's productions and education programs.

The Light in the Piazza opened on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theater April 18, 2005. The musical earned eleven Tony nominations and took the honors for Best Original Score, Best Actress (Victoria Clark), Best Orchestrations, Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design and Best Lighting Design.

"Based on the novel by Elizabeth Spencer, The Light in the Piazza is set in the summer of 1953 and tells the story of a mother and daughter traveling through Italy, the daughter’s romance with a handsome, high-spirited Florentine and the mother’s determined efforts to keep the two apart."

A limited number of tickets to the performance only, priced at $90 and $150, are available at the Lincoln Center Theater box office, at telecharge.com or by visiting lct.org.
