Course detail: OS19103F - The Bridges of Madison County (A Musical)
This adaptation of Robert James Waller's bestselling novel earned a Tony Award for Best Original Score. It's 1965 in Winterset, Iowa, where Italian war bride Francesca Johnson has been living a largely unfulfilling farm life when her husband, son and daughter leave to attend a 4-H show. Francesca's quiet weekend is upended when photographer Robert Kincaid appears asking directions to one of the county's famed covered bridges. Her well-intended hospitality to a stranger turns both their lives upside down.
