We’ve talked on the show about the history of y’all and how to lie like a Southerner… but how does one sing with a Southern accent? It’s a question tackled in the upcoming production of “The Light in the Piazza” at the Theatrical Outfit in Atlanta. The award-winning musical takes place in the 1950s and tells the story of a wealthy Southern woman and her disabled daughter on a trip to Italy.

We speak with the Theatrical Outfit's Associate Artistic Director Clifton Guterman  and dialect coach Elisa Carlson about the show and how to sing like a Southerner. 

"The Light at the Piazza" runs from April 14, 2016 to May 15, 2016 at the Theatrical Outfit in Atlanta. More information about upcoming performances and tickets can be found here
