Bridges of Madison County Coming to Broadway in 2014

The Bridges of Madison CountyRobert James Waller’s best-selling 1992 novel The Bridges of Madison County, which later became a movie starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood, will soon step onto the Broadway stage. Adapted by bookwriter Marsha Norman and composer/lyricist Jason Robert Brown, The Bridges of Madison County musical will start performances at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on January 13, 2014.

Directed by Bartlett Sher, the production will have a pre-Broadway premiere this August at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Steven Pasquale and Elena Shaddow will star in the Williamstown run, but casting for Broadway has not yet been announced.

A romantic favorite when it came out in book stores, The Bridges of Madison County is about a very brief love affair between a lonely Iowa housewife and a traveling National Geographic photographer. The novel was on the New York Times bestseller list for over three years.
