BPA presents the inaugural off-broadway premiere of "Light in the Piazza" while Port Orchard gets its own art walk this weekend.
‘LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA’
Bainbridge Performing Arts presents the classic tale of the young impressionable American woman falling head over heels for a European while abroad in the not-so-classic play “Light in the Piazza.”
The show originally premiered at the Intiman Theater in Seattle before going to Broadway in 2005-2006 and garnering a slue of awards. Bainbridge Performing Arts is the first in the Northwest to stage the musical since Broadway, with shows starting at 7:30 p.m. tonight. It will run through May 24 at BPA, 200 Madison Ave. on Bainbridge. For tickets and more info, go to www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org or call the box office at (206) 842-8569.
