ABOUT THE SHOW
The Bridges of Madison County is a musical, based on Robert James Waller's 1992 novel, with a book by Marsha Norman and music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown.
Francesca, an Italian war bride living in Winterset, Iowa in 1965, has had eighteen years of quiet, largely unfulfilling farm life.
Her family includes stoic husband Bud, rebellious son Michael, and reluctant daughter Carolyn who are journeying to Indianapolis for three days to the national "4-H" fair to show Carolyn's prize steer, Stevie.
After the family departs, Francesca is planning a relaxing weekend free from responsibilities.
That afternoon, a blue pick-up truck pulls into her driveway carrying Robert Kincaid, a photographer for the National Geographic who has travelled from Washington State to photograph the famous covered bridges of Madison County.
Robert is unable to find the seventh covered bridge, the Roseman Bridge, and Francesca agrees to accompany him to the bridge for a short scouting trip.
Once at the Roseman Bridge, Francesca feels something developing between her and Robert.
The musical premiered on Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on February 20, 2014, and closed on May 18, 2014.
The Broadway production was directed by Bartlett Sher and starred Kelli O'Hara as Francesca and Steven Pasquale as Robert.
Brown's work on the musical won the 2014 Tony Awards for Best Original Score and Best Orchestrations.
For the safety of our cast, crew, and audience we will be requesting proof of vaccination and that masks are worn by audience members and staff while in the theater.
