Photo Coverage: Inside Opening Night of THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY at Williamstown Theatre Festival with Steven Pasquale & More!
Williamstown Theatre Festival just opened the sixth production of the 2013 Main Stage season: The World Premiere musical, The Bridges of Madison County, on the Main Stage. Playing through August 18, the show began preview performances on August 1. BroadwayWorld was there for opening night and you can check out photos from the after party below!
The Broadway-bound musical is based on the best-selling novel by Robert James Waller that captivated millions of readers. The Bridges of Madison County is brought to life onstage in a passionate new musical production written by acclaimed playwright, screenwriter and novelist Marsha Norman (Pulitzer Prize for 'night, Mother), with music and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years). Norman's additional Broadway credits include book and lyrics for The Secret Garden, for which she won a Tony Award and the Drama Desk Award, as well as the libretto for the musical The Color Purple.
Directed by Tony Award-winner and Resident Director of Lincoln Center Theatre Bartlett Sher (South Pacific, Golden Boy, Awake and Sing!), The Bridges of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America's heartland along with the deep yearning entangled in the eternal question, "What if...?"
