The upcoming Broadway premiere of The Bridges of Madison County, which was set to begin performances on January 13, 2014, has delayed its start date until January 17. Jason Robert Brown and Marsha Norman's new musical, starring Tony nominee Kelli O'Hara and Steven Pasquale, will still officially open on February 27 at the Schoenfeld Theatre.
Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher, The Bridges of Madison County is based on the acclaimed novel by Robert James Waller and tells the story of an Iowa housewife named Francesca Johnson (O'Hara) and her unlikely love affair with Robert Kincaid (Pasquale), a National Geographic photographer. The novel was previously adapted into a 1995 film starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood, who also helmed the movie.
The creative team for The Bridges of Madison County will include scenic design by Michael Yeargan, costume design by Catherine Zuber, lighting design by Donald Holder and sound design by Jon Weston.
