Best Musical — Touring Denver 2008 - The Light in the Piazza
Denver Center Attractions
Luscious and lyrical, a feast for the eyes, ears and mind, The Light in the Piazza reminded you of just how romantic a musical can be. Every performance was a gem. Katie Rose Clarke was a luminous Clara; David Burnham, too, sang like an angel. And at any point, if you happened to get bored watching superb actors carry an absorbing plot or listening to varied and heart-stirring music, you could study the exquisite architectural contours of Michael Yeargan's set, admire the vibrant colors of Catherine Zuber's costumes or take in the shifting play of light created by Christopher Akerlind. This play left you dizzy with pleasure.
