It was also recently announced that live theatrical rights for Bridges of Madison County have been acquired by Music Theatre International.

Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher (Golden Boy, South Pacific, The Light in the Piazza) helmed the musical that has a score by Tony winner Brown (Parade, Honeymoon in Vegas) and a book by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman (The Secret Garden, 'Night Mother).

The musical ended its Broadway run May 18 after 137 performances. Despite its brief run, The Bridges of Madison County earned two 2014 Tony Awards, for Best Score and Best Orchestrations.

Tony Award nominee Kelli O'Hara (The Light in the Piazza, South Pacific, Nice Work If You Can Get It) and Steven Pasquale (Reasons to Be Pretty, Far From Heaven, "Rescue Me") led the cast as Italian-American housewife Francesca Johnson and National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid, respectively.

A Ghostlight Records cast album preserves the score.

The romantic musical centers on a brief, four-day love affair between a National Geographic photographer and an Italian-American housewife in 1965 Iowa. Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep starred in the 1995 film adaptation. The stage production and film were based on the best-selling Robert James Waller novel.
