THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY
 


The Chocolate Factory is pleased to present the UK premier of the musical version of the best-selling novel by Robert James Waller and subsequent motion picture directed by Clint Eastwood.



Jenna Russell will play Francesca, an Italian immigrant housewife living a happy existence on a farm in the American Midwest. However, when her family go off to the Iowa State Fair, she meets Robert Kincaid, a National Geographic photographer on assignment filming bridges in the area. Their initial friendship develops into a brief but passionate affair which has devastating consequences on all of their lives.

Winner of two Tony Awards for Best Original Score and Best Orchestrations, this is some of Jason Robert Brown’s most ravishing and unforgettable music.
