The Bridges of Madison County

BrightSide Theatre, Naperville’s only professional theatre performing in the historic downtown district, kicks off their 7th Season – Cinema to Stage - with the Western Suburb Premier of 2 time Tony Award winning Broadway musical The Bridges of Madison County. Performing at the Theatre at Meiley-Swallow Hall at North Central College, 31 S. Ellsworth Street in Naperville November 3-19, 2017. Tickets are on sale now at www.brightsidetheatre.com, or by phone at 630-447-TIXS (8497). The press performance is Friday, November 3 at 8pm.

A talented ensemble of actors make up the Cast of The Bridges of Madison County: Laura Brennan (Chicago); Morgan Dietkus (Aurora); Julie Ann Kornak (Naperville), Justin Miller (Utica, KY); David Moreland (Chicago); Brandon Pisano (Elmhurst); Christine Ronna (Wilmington); Gary Smiley (Lisle); Shaina Summerville (Chicago); and Matt Whalen (Woodridge).

Their first production of our season of celebrating stories that have been adapted to the stage from the cinema has been called “one of the most unforgettable romantic stories ever written”. The Bridges of Madison County first captured the nation’s attention as a best-selling novel, then became an award winning film, is now an irresistible, two-time Tony Award® winning Broadway musical. Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-torn Italy, looks forward to a few days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair. When National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid pulls into her driveway seeking directions, a chance encounter becomes a four-day whirlwind romance caught between decision and desire –offering a second chance at so much more. This sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross will leave audiences breathless.
