Based on the best selling novel and developed by the Pulitzer Prize winning team of Marsha Norman and Jason Robert Brown, The Bridges of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the universal yearning entangled with the eternal question “What if…?” Winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Score and Best Orchestrations, this sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross is sure to leave audiences breathless.
Franchesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-torn Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair.
