New Musical “Bridges of Madison County” to Premiere at WTF in Summer 2013 [Berkshire on Stage]
by Larry Murray
Who doesn’t love the book and film “The Bridges of Madison County”? Now just imagine the gorgeous Kelli O’Hara returning to the Williamstown Theatre Festival to play the central character in this great story – originally played on film by Meryl Streep – when it turns into a musical fable. According to The New York Times, the show will be directed by Bartlett Sher, who won a Tony directing “South Pacific” in 2008, once again reuniting with that show’s leading actress, Kelli O’Hara. Unless I miss my guess, it is a new and promising musical that will be the talk of the Berkshire summer.
