23.09.2022, Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair.

When ruggedly handsome National Geographic photographer, Robert Kincaid, pulls into her driveway seeking directions, though, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca's life.

Based on the #1 New York Times bestseller that sold over 60 million copies, making it one of the best selling books of the 20th century, and developed by the Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning creative team of Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, Songs for a New World) and Marsha Norman, The Bridges of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America's heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question "What if...?"

Winner of the 2014 Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Orchestrations, this sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open, and the bridges we dare to cross will leave audiences breathless.

As well as the book and musical, The Bridges of Madison County is also a film starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood. The 1995 feature film won 7 Oscars and was nominated for a further 18. In German- speaking countries, the film premiered as Die Brücken am Fluss.
