ELIZABETH STANLEY & ANDREW SAMONSKY TO STAR AS FRANCESCA JOHNSON & ROBERT KINCAID

Type A Marketing, July 23, 2015

The producers of the upcoming national tour of THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY have announced that Elizabeth Stanley, currently starring in the role of Claire De Loone on Broadway in the revival of On the Town, and Andrew Samonsky, last seen in The Hunchback of Notre Dame at the Paper Mill Playhouse, will star as Francesca Johnson and Robert Kincaid. Featuring gorgeous, soulful music by three-time Tony Award®winner JASON ROBERT BROWN that draws upon the rich textures of Americana and folk and the sweeping balladry of classic Broadway, Joe Dziemianowicz of the New York Daily News hails it as “one of Broadway’s best scores in the last decade.” Tom Geier of Entertainment Weekly exclaims that Brown “has written a lush and deeply romantic score, filled with rich and melodic duets,” and NPR proclaims it’s “MAGIC! An evening you will cherish long after the show is over!” As previously announced, the production will begin performances on November 28 at the Des Moines Civic Center in Des Moines, IA and will continue to over 15 additional major markets across North America in its first season.

Wharton Center 2015-2016 season: Kristen Chenoweth, 'The Sound of Music,' the return of 'The Book of Mormon' and more!

Michigan Live, April 21, 2015

EAST LANSING, MI — It’s hard to argue with executive director Mike Brand when he describes the Wharton Center’s 2015-2016 season as a “Broadway Bonanza.” He has nine blockbusters coming to town. Yes, that’s right. Nine!. One of the biggies is the return of “The Book of Mormon,” which sold out 99 percent of all tickets when it was here last June. “They’re all major productions,” Brand said. “All of them are playing or have played Broadway recently. We have a lot of great choices.”

Fox Theatre brings 'Newsies,' 'Matilda the Musical' and more for 2015-16 season

Fox Theatre brings 'Newsies,' 'Matilda the Musical' and more for 2015-16 season

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, April 18, 2015

Indefatigable children — and several impressive women — take center stage in the Fox Theatre productions next season, all in shows new to St. Louis. “Matilda the Musical” and “Newsies” concentrate on kids who triumph against all odds. Based on Roald Dahl’s enduring novel, “Matilda” won four 2013 Tony Awards with its tale of a smart, imaginative girl who stands up for herself and her friends at the worst school in the world. It’s still running in New York and London. The heroine of “If/Then” is a modern woman facing big decisions in New York City. A complex musical from Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, the show follows her down two different life paths, considering the implications of each. A much more traditional woman finds unexpected romance with an exciting stranger in “The Bridges of Madison County,” Jason Robert Brown’s musical adaption of Robert James Waller’s popular novel. It won two Tony Awards, including best score, last year.
