The multiple Tony Award winning musical takes place in Italy in the
summer of 1953. Margaret Johnson, the wife of an American businessman,
is touring the Tuscan countryside with her daughter, Clara. A chance

is revealed: in addition to the cultural differences between the young
lovers, Clara is not quite all that she appears. Unable to suppress the
truth about her daughter, Margaret is forced to reconsider not only
Clara’s future, but her own hopes as well.
