The Light in the Piazza's musical score, while owing much to the traditional Broadway sound, often veers into the territory of Neoromantic classical music and opera, with unexpected harmonic shifts and extended melodic structures, and lushly scored for piano, harp, guitar and strings, alongside a handful of wind and percussionists. The lyrics are unique in that many of them are in Italian and broken English, as many of the characters are only fluent in Italian.
Opening to mostly glowing reviews, The Light in the Piazza has become a favorite of New York's awards organizations. Along with the Tony Awards showing, it led the Outer Critics Circle Awards nominations with 11 nods, while the Drama Desk organization also nominated it in 11 categories. Originally scheduled to close on June 12, 2005, the show's run was extended four times. Its last performance on Broadway took place on July 2, 2006, after which it went on a national tour.
