Based on the popular film and best-selling novel by Robert James Waller, the musical features a lush and varied score and tells the story of a Midwestern farm wife whose life is upended by a brief and passionate affair with a traveling photographer. The music and lyrics are by Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, 13), with a book by Marsha Norman (‘night, Mother, The Secret Garden). The concert will be directed and choreographed by Merete Muenter, with Caleb Hoyer serving as Music Director and Keith Levenson conducting the orchestra.

The live concert performances will be presented on Friday and Saturday, June 25th and 26th at 8pm at the Pleasant Valley Park Amphitheater (3405 Valley Road) in Basking Ridge, NJ. Patrons are asked to bring a chair or blanket to these free outdoor performances. Additional information can be found at:

American Theater Group (ATG), founded in 2012, produces new and classic works primarily by American playwrights with an emphasis on the development of new works and the rediscovery of undeservedly neglected older ones. The group will soon begin its residence at the Mitchell and Ann Sieminski Theater at the Fellowship Cultural Arts Center in Basking Ridge, NJ.  ATG programming is made possible in part by funds from Investors Bank and the Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
