Casting will be announced at a later date. The 2014 Broadway production, directed by Bartlett Sher, starred Kelli O'Hara and Steven Pasquale.

In the musical, Francesca is an Italian immigrant housewife living a happy existence on a farm in the American Midwest. When her family heads to the Iowa State Fair, she meets Robert Kincaid, a National Geographic photographer on assignment filming bridges in the area. Their initial friendship develops into a brief but passionate affair which has consequences on all of their lives.

The production will also have designs by Jon Bausor, lighting design by Tim Lutkin, sound design by Gregory Clarke, and musical supervision and direction by Tom Murray.

Brown won Tony Awards for Best Original Score and Best Orchestrations.

The forthcoming production is produced in association Michael Harrison and David Ian.

The Bay at Nice is currently running at the Menier, and Fiddler on the Roof, also directed by Nunn, is at the Playhouse Theatre.
