Redhouse will close its 2022-23 Season with the touching and powerful, Tony Award-winning Broadway musical The Bridges of Madison County. Based on the best-selling novel, and developed by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown and Pulitzer Prize-winner 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…?”
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. This stunning two-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical featuring gorgeous, soulful music is a sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross that is sure to leave audiences breathless.
