(Kravis On Broadway)

THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, one of the most romantic stories ever written, first captured the nation's attention as a best-selling novel by Robert James Waller and is now an irresistible, two time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical.

This stunning new production features gorgeous, soulful music by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years) that the Daily News hails as "one of Broadway's best scores in the last decade." With a book by Pulitzer Prize Winner Marsha Norman (The Secret Garden, The Color Purple) and direction by 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.

"Weird Al" Yankovic

The Mandatory World Tour

'Weird Al" Yankovic, the kinky-haired prince of parody hilarity, has won four Grammy Awards and accolades galore for classics such as Eat It (Michael Jackson's Beat It) and Like a Surgeon (Madonna's Like a Virgin). The top-selling comedy recording artist of all time, Weird Al got his start as a shy, accordion-playing teenager. His 2014 rendition, Word Crimes (Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines), debuted in the Billboard Top 40, making Al one of only three people to have had Top 40 singles in each of the last four decades. The other two? Michael Jackson and Madonna.
