Stars Kelli O'Hara and Steven Pasquale and director Bartlett Sher discuss and perform selections from The Bridges of Madison County Jan. 5 at the 92nd Street Y.

The 7:30 PM event features a discussion with Tony Award winner Sher (Golden Boy, South Pacific), four-time Tony Award nominee O'Hara (Nice Work If You Can Get It, South Pacific) and Pasquale (reasons to be pretty, "Rescue Me"), moderated by Tony Award-winning composer/lyricist Adam Guettel (The Light in the Piazza). Songs from the show will also be performed.

The musical, which features a score by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Songs for a New World) and a book by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman (The Secret Garden; 'night, Mother), is based on the best-selling novel by Robert James Waller that was also adapted into an Oscar-nominated film starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood. The story centers on a brief, four-day love affair between a National Geographic photographer and an Italian-American housewife in 1965 Iowa.

The Bridges of Madison County will begin Broadway previews Jan. 17, prior to a Feb. 20 opening night at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.
