Kelli O'Hara and Steven Pasquale join 'Bridges'


| Zoom

NEW YORK (AP) - The Broadway-bound musical "The Bridges of Madison County" has its new lovers _ Kelli O'Hara and Steven Pasquale.

Producers said Wednesday that O'Hara, last on Broadway in "Nice Work If You Can Get It," will star opposite Pasquale, who was in "Reasons To Be Pretty."

The show, with songs by Jason Robert Brown and a book by Marsha Norman, will debut at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts this August and then land at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater in January. Previews begin Jan. 13.

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.

Norman won a Tony for writing "`night, Mother" and Brown wrote the Tony nominated "Parade" and "The Last Five Years."
