The performing and fine arts department is offering a discounted performance of Mock’s Crest Productions’ “The Light in the Piazza” on Thursday, June 21. Faculty and staff members can buy tickets for $16 by presenting a UP ID at the box office, which is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., M–F, or call x7287 to reserve.
“The Light in the Piazza” is a contemporary musical operetta with a book by Craig Lucas and music and lyrics by Adam Guettel. The story is based on a 1962 film about a mother and daughter on a journey of self-discovery and finding true love in the streets of Florence. The music broke with the standard Broadway pop tradition and ventured into neoromantic classical music for which it won a Tony Award in 2005.
