Kerry Lengel and Jennifer Haaland recently spoke to the composer and star, respectively, of the national tour of The Bridges of Madison County, which comes to ASU Gammage next week for a one week run from Tuesday February 16th to Sunday February 21st...

Highlights from Jennifer's conversation with Elizabeth Stanley, the star of the tour -

"It's about 'risking something precious.' So goes a lyric in the "epic romance" that "grips your heart" according to leading lady Elizabeth Stanley who visited yesterday with Examiner about the national tour of "Bridges of Madison County." She plays Francesca in next week's very Valentine, new Broadway musical that won 2014's Tony for Best Score and Best Orchestration, and it plays at ASU Gammage Tuesday through Sunday. ...."This love story is so real and modern. Full of great humor and sparks, it also shows great introspection and self-reckoning. There's nothing cheesy about it," she said...."

Highlights from Kerry's conversation with Jason Robert Brown, the composer of the musical -

"Broadway composer Jason Robert Brown makes no bones about the fact that he didn’t write a musical of “The Bridges of Madison County” because he was a fan of the book. “When the book first came out, I was (21), and you know, I was a young, straight guy in New York City, so there was no reason at all why I would have been interested in the novel,” Brown says. “And then my mother’s an English teacher, and she told me she’d disown me if I read the book.”....CLICK HERE to read the rest of Kerry's interview at The Arizona Republic
