One of the most romantic novels ever written is now Broadway's most irresistible new musical. Four-time Tony nominee Kelli O'Hara stars with Steven Pasquale in the most romantic musical Broadway has seen in years. Directed by two-time Tony winner Bartlett Sher, (South Pacific, The Light in the Piazza) The Bridges of Madison County is the unforgettable story of two people caught between decision and desire, as a chance encounter becomes a second chance at so much more.
The design team includes Michael Yeargan (scenic design), Donald Holder (lighting design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), and Jon Weston (sound design). Casting was by Abbie Brady-Dalton, CSA, from Telsey + Company.
The Bridges of Madison County, based on the best-selling novel by Robert James Waller, comes to Broadway after an acclaimed run at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.
