The Bridges of Madison County

music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
book by Marsha Norman
based on the novel by Robert James Waller

directed and choreographed by Kurt Boehm
music directed by Elisa Rosman

An acclaimed musical based on the best-selling novel, THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY was 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.

A sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross, this 2014 Tony Award-winner for Best Score and Orchestrations captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland and the yearning entangled in the eternal question “What if…?”

“Jason Robert Brown…brings layered textures of yearning to his songs for Francesca that make us experience the world through her startled, newly awakened senses.” – The New York Times
