Overview


Synopsis

Francesca is a dedicated, Iowan housewife, living a simple, yet dispassionate, life. Everything changes when her family goes on a trip to the State Fair in Indianapolis, leaving Francesca behind to take care of the house. Francesca is taken aback by a handsome National Geographic photographer named Robert, who asks for directions to the covered bridges of Madison County. The two connect, starting an emotional four-day love affair that has repercussions long after it’s over. Based on the bestselling novel by Robert James Waller and featuring a lush, Tony award-winning score by Jason Robert Brown that ranges from operatic strains to Americana folk, Bridges of Madison County tells the tale of two people caught between duty and desire.
