Show Description:
This play is the second production written by Jason Robert Brown presented this year at Lakeland and is also the Northeast Ohio local premier. The story, set on a quiet farm in America’s heartland, is about an Italian war bride who is living life as an average Iowan housewife until a National Geographic photographer knocks on her door. He is seeking directions to the area’s historic bridges and he needs her help to find them. As they travel to the various locations for the photo shoots, an unexpected, yet powerful connection grows. And so begins a sweeping romance between soul mates that ultimately leads to the struggle between longing and commitments as well as questions in life about the roads traveled, the doors opened and the bridges crossed along the way.
