BWW Review: National Tour of THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY Bows Gracefully at the Ahmanson
by Don Grigware - Dec 14, 2015

The Bridges of Madison County was a hit film in 1995 for Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood.

When you look closely, there's so much to praise that it makes no sense whatsoever that the show closed early on Broadway and won only one Tony for Brown's music. It should have played on and on and walked away with a slew of awards. (more...)
