Get swept away by,

The Bridges
of Madison County

one of the most romantic stories ever written, first captured the nation’s attention as a best-selling novel by Robert James Waller...

...A ravishingly beautiful and lush musical that captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question “What if…?” It is the touching story of Francesca, a lovely Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy. She is looking forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm as her... heads to the 1965 Indiana State Fair when ruggedly handsome, National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid pulls into her driveway seeking directions. What happens in those next four days may very well alter the course of Francesca’s life. It’s an unforgettable story of two people caught between decision and desire, as a chance...

...encounter becomes a second chance at so much more.

The Genesius production is directed & music directed by Genesius veteran, actor, director and music director, Christopher Sperat, choreographed by Caitlin Whelan, with a set design by Jeffrey Jones, light design by Zack Spadaccia & Spencer Moss Fecho,
