The Tony-winning musical comes to Chicago this summer!
Following a hugely successful Broadway revival in 2013 with two Tony Awards, the super-romantic musical weepy arrives at the Marriott Theatre this summer. Loyalty and desire collide violently in this musical adaptation of Robert James Waller's famed novel. The story follows the romance between Francesca, a lonely and isolated Italian-American housewife in Iowa, and National Geographic photographer Robert who becomes lost whilst shooting the county's bridges and stumbles into her home. What follows is a romantic drama that melts the stoniest of hearts.
With an original score by multi-Tony Award-winning scribe Jason Robert Brown, the world of Bridges takes us back to 1965, and explores the nature of our own romantic decisions through the avatars of Francesca and Robert. Although their connection is undeniable, what will the consequences of their passionate affair bring to those around them? Without doubt a true classic, this revival of Bridges opened on Broadway in 2013, going on to win two Tony-Awards that season.
