Thanks for the comment — so glad to hear you’re intrigued by the play. RESTORATION is not based on a book, but rather the actual event of the 2003-04 restoration (albeit heavily fictionalized — as Claudia Shear’s note in the program says, “Everything about the David is true; everything else is fiction”).
However, if you’re interested in finding out more about Michelangelo and the creation of the David, the following books might be of interest (they were to me during the research process):
IL GIGANTE by Anton Gill
To get some insight into all the preparation that went into the 2003-04 restoration, you might also check out the following web page, which describes the Stanford Michelangelo Project:
Hope that helps — see you at the theatre!
