Based on the best-selling novel, "The Bridges of Madison County" tells of a forbidden love affair between a photographer and a housewife that changes them forever. The musical 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.

Image-15 (1)"The first thing that drew me to The Bridges of Madison County was the score," said director Jeffrey Fiorello. "Jason Robert Brown is probably the most versatile composer today. His music is not only interesting to listen to, it also has enough of a flavor for the period that is being portrayed. The Bridges of Madison County is no exception. He has really given each character a unique musical style. What has kept me interested as a director is the story of Francesca and Robert. It is a true, honest, and flawed love story. Francesca is faced with making a choice between her one great love, or the love of her family.  Her struggle is real and through her we too are reminded that in life there are some truly significant choices we must all make."

The cast includes Tina Kaye, Sean Finnerty, Sal Navarro, Jodi Freeman Maloy, Rich Maloy, Samantha Kaplan, Sean Switzer, Anna Lovallo, Catherine Flynn, Will K. Carey, Kathleen Mallon, and Kevin Ohlweiler.  Music direction by Jack Bender.
