THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY
VINTAGE THEATRE: JUNE 22 – AUGUST 5
L-R: Megan Van De Hey and Andy Sievers
Can an Italian war bride living in Madison County, find happiness with a photographer from National Geographic while her husband and kids are away at the state fair? This is the question asked by playwright, Marsha Norman. One assumes this is the question Robert James Waller asks as author of the best-selling book, and that Richard Le Gravenese asks as screen writer for the 1995 movie, in which Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood starred. (Eastwood also directed the film.)
Andy Sievers is a believable Robert. The chemistry between Ms. Van De Hey and Mr. Sievers is poignant.
If one looks at this evening as a concert by the mega-talented Megan Van De Hey, I can recommend it. If not, I can’t. Other than Ms. Van De Hey’s beautiful and powerful vocals, only the comic moments provided by Abby Apple Boes as a prying, nosey neighbor named Marge, delight.Marlowe's Musings
