"The Bridges of Madison County" == the book made into a film starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood -- is heading to Broadway as a musical.
Producers said Thursday the show, with songs by Jason Robert Brown and a book by Marsha Norman which debuts at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts this August, will land at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater in January.
Based on Robert Waller's best-selling novel, the story features Iowa's covered bridges as the focal point for a romance between a woman and a photographer.
No casting was announced. Bartlett Sher will direct.
Norman won a Tony for writing "`night, Mother" and Brown wrote "Parade" and "The Last Five Years." In an interview, Brown called "Bridges" "a deeply romantic piece in the fullest sense of the word."
