The Bridges of Madison County

"The score by Jason Robert Brown is sumptuous!"

"Magic! An evening you will cherish long after the show is over!"

"Feast your ears on Jason Robert Brown’s lush, romantic score!"


The Bridges of Madison County, one of the most romantic stories ever written, is now an irresistible, two-time Tony Award®-winning musical. Based on the best-selling novel by Robert James Waller, The Bridges of Madison County is an unforgettable story of two people caught between decision and desire, as a chance encounter becomes a second chance at so much more.

This stunning new production features gorgeous, soulful music by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years) that draws upon the rich textures of Americana and folk and the sweeping, expressive balladry of classic Broadway. The Daily News hails it as “one of Broadway’s best scores in the last decade.”

After a fitting debut in Des Moines, within the same vivid Iowa landscape depicted in the production, The Bridges of Madison County toured the county in 2015-2016, enrapturing audiences from coast to coast.
