“Beautiful performance, lush music, and killer orchestra.”
“By far the strongest vocals I’ve seen of any performance at TL. If you like being brought to tears by an unexpected love story, I would recommend this musical.”
“The set and the rear screen projection allowed for easy scene transition and provided the illusion of day, night, and location to a point where you really believed you were on location.”

The Bridges of Madison County!
Based on the novel by Robert James Waller
Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Book by Marsha Norman
Romance is in the air this autumn as we open our season with a story adapted for the stage in what has been called “one of the most unforgettable romantic stories ever written”. The Bridges of Madison County first captured the nation’s heart as a best-selling novel, became an Academy Award winning film, and is now an unforgettable, Tony Award winning Broadway musical.
Francesca, a beautiful Italian woman, leaves war-torn Italy, to marry American soldier, Bud. She helps build a new home and family, and as she looks forward to a rare few days alone on her Iowa farm while her family heads to the 1965 State Fair, ruggedly handsome National Geographic photographer, Robert, pulls into her driveway seeking directions. A chance encounter becomes a whirlwind romance that could change the course of Francesca’s life. Tackling the eternal question of “what if…?“, this lush romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open, and the bridges we dare to cross, will leave audiences breathless.
