Based on the best-selling novel, a forbidden love affair between a photographer and a housewife changes them forever.

Based on the best-selling novel, and developed by the Pulitzer- and TONY Award-winning creative team of Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, Songs For A New World) and Marsha Norman, The Bridges Of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America's heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question, 'What if...?'. Winner of the 2014 TONY Award for Best Score and Orchestrations, this sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross will leave audiences breathless.

Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 state fair. But when ruggedly handsome National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid pulls into her driveway seeking directions, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca's life.

With a soaring score and heartbreaking story, The Bridges Of Madison County is a touching and powerful addition to any theatre's season. The tour de force roles of Francesca and Robert are a dream come true for any actor, while the ensemble is rich with characters that tell their own individual stories and receive plenty of focus on stage.
