This week our Song of the Day blog is curated by singer and actress Lauren Worsham who will be performing at the NYFOS Gala on April 5th alongside David Hyde Pierce, Hal Cazalet, and Bryce Pinkham. She has starred with New York City Opera and Fort Worth Opera as well as on Broadway in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder for which she won a Drama Desk Award and was nominated for a Tony Award. She is also the lead singer for the rock band, Sky-Pony.
The Light in the Piazza is one of my favorite musicals of all time and this song is one of my favorite pieces from that show. I find it incredibly heart-breaking. The whole show is really a meditation on love its various forms. This song is about what happens to love when it starts to change, slip away and ultimately perhaps fade.
