The Light in the Piazza Reviews
Alannah P from Wales
GO AND SEE IT!!
I admit, I had very high expectations of this show when I went on 14th June. I knew a few of the songs, in particular "Il Mondo Era Vuoto" which was performed absolutely exquisitely by Rob Houchen, and was looking forward to seeing the costumes, set design etc. The cast, overall, were excellent as well as the costumes, setting and raised position of the orchestra. Some people (on other sites) have said about how the Italian dialogue with no translations is distracting, and disengages them from the performance but I disagree. In fact, in the second act, there is a very funny part where one of the Italian speaking characters breaks out into broken English to translate the dramatic action of the story to us! I urge you: it might take a little while to get into, but you will not be disappointed if you give this show a chance.
