The Bridges of Madison County
Marsha Norman (Book); Jason Robert Brown (Music & Lyrics)
Based on the Novel by Robert James Waller
|Rob Robertson & Joan Hess|
Anyone coming to TheatreWorks Silicon Valley’s The Bridges of Madison County fearing the evening could drip with sappiness certainly left thinking anything but. The soaring score with haunting melodies that linger long after final curtain call combines with a director, creative team, and cast who together weave a story that captures and holds full attention the entire two hours, forty minutes (with intermission), stirring many, sometimes conflicting emotions that are deeply felt and long remembered.
