This sweeping musical romance about the roads we travel and the bridges we dare to cross recalls
the unexpected affair of a devoted Italian-born housewife and a roving National Geographic 
photographer —four sensual, heart-stirring days that would never be forgotten. Set amidst the
cornfields of Iowa in 1965, it is an intimate remembrance of love both lost and found,
brilliantly adapted by a Pulitzer Prize playwright and Tony Award composer
from one of America’s favorite novels.
