The Bridges of Madison County (Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre). The Bridges of Madison County — the new Jason Robert Brown-Marsha Norman musical based on the Robert James Waller romance novel — has a Tony-nominated score by Tony winner Jason Robert Brown and stars Kelli O'Hara and Steven Pasquale as Italian-American housewife Francesca Johnson and National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid, respectively. The musical earned four 2014 Tony Award nominations including Best Original Score (Brown), Best Actress (O'Hara), Best Lighting Design ( Donald Holder) and Best Orchestrations (Brown). 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. Visit
