The Bridges of Madison County

The roads we travel …. the doors we open …. and the bridges we dare to cross ….

A sweeping musical romance of desire and sacrifice based on the best-selling novel by Robert James Waller.
After marrying an American soldier to escape Italy at the end of World War II, Francesca builds herself a home in Iowa, raising two children and settling into a steady but unremarkable routine. The path of her future seems destined. Then an unexpected fork in the road causes her to question everything she had come to expect from life. Robert, a charismatic photographer, turns his truck into the long drive to her farmhouse asking for directions, awakens her passion and changes her life forever……….

……..This is the story of a special love that happens just once in a lifetime ……….

Already adapted into a much loved film starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood, Robert James Waller’s romantic novel is now a stunning Musical. With a gorgeous Tony Award -winning score by Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade) and a moving book by Pulitzer Prize -winning playwright Marsha Norman (The Color Purple, The Secret Garden), The Bridges of Madison County is a ravishing story about the choices we make for love and the eternal question … what if?
