The two-time Tony Award-winning musical The Bridges of Madison County will receive its London premiere at the Menier Chocolate Factory this summer, sending audiences on a theatrical trip to the American Midwest. Based on the novel by Robert James Waller and Clint Eastwood movie sharing the same name, enjoy the beautiful, original music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown in a show where love can be captured with a click of a camera.
Jenna Russell will return to the Menier to play Francesca, starring in previous Menier productions of Merrily We Roll Along and Sunday in the Park With George. The Olivier Award-winning actress’ theatre credits include Fun Home, Into the Woods and Guys and Dolls, picking up another Olivier Award nomination.
Edward Baker-Duly will play Robert in the London premiere of The Bridges of Madison County, previously starring in The King and I at the London Palladium. Additional theatre credits including The Wizard of Oz as well as an off-Broadway production of Peter and the Starcatcher.
The cast is completed by Georgia Brown, Maddison Bulleyment, Shanay Holmes, Gillian Kirkpatrick, Paul F Monaghan, David Perkins and Dale Rapley.
Audiences meet Francesca, an Italian immigrant housewife living in the Midwest. Living a simplistic, rustic yet content life, Francesca’s life is turned upside down when she meets Robert Kincaid, a National Geographic photographer who has recently found himself in the area. As the pair’s friendship develops romantically, will their love hold up like the bridges around them, or will the consequences of their affair be stronger than their connection? In an unforgettable show, The Bridges of Madison County features songs including “Almost Real” and “Look at Me”.
