“The Bridges of Madison County” is heading to broadway as a musical.
The book made into a film starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood will land at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater in January.
The show, with songs by Jason Robert Brown and a book by Marsha Norman debuts at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts this August.
Based on Robert Waller’s bestselling novel, the story features Iowa’s covered bridges as the focal point for a romance between a woman and a photographer.
Marsha Norman won a Tony for writing “’Night, Mother” and Brown wrote “Parade” and “The Last Five Years.”
