Roads traveled, doors opened, bridges crossed. A ravishingly beautiful and lush Tony Award-winning musical based on the best-selling novel. Developed by the Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning creative team of Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years) and Marsha Norman (The Secret Garden, The Color Purple) this musical 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 family 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.
$41, $44 & $47.
8PM Tuesday – Saturday and 7:30PM on Sunday except August 13th at 4PM.
