The Bridges of Madison County

The Tony Award-Winning New Musical
Regional Premiere! — Mainstage

February 13, 2020 – March 1, 2020

Book by Marsha Norman | Music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown | Based on the novel by Robert James Waller

Based on the best-selling novel, and developed by the Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning creative team of Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, Songs for a New World) and Marsha Norman, The Bridges of Madison County 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.

Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair. When ruggedly handsome, National Geographic photographer, Robert Kincaid, pulls into her driveway seeking directions, though, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca’s life.

Running time: 2 hours, 45 minutes including intermission. Recommended for ages 16+

The FAC Theatre Company is the Henry Award-Winner for Outstanding Season!
