A forbidden love affair between a photographer and a housewife changes them forever in this stunning new musical that captures the heartland of America. Francesca, who married an American soldier to flee war torn Italy, looks forward to four days alone on her Iowa farm as her family heads to the 1965 State Fair. When National Geographic photographer Robert pulls into her driveway seeking directions, the course of their lives begin to change as they struggle with the eternal question “What if…” .Based on the novel that inspired the Clint Eastwood film, and winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Score, this tale of yearning is enhanced by the soaring music of Jason Robert Brown.
