Live theater is back! Broadway houses playing to 80% capacity. Omicron cases in NJ in third week of decline. Spring is on the way… 


THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, arguably one of Broadway’s greatest musicals from Broadway’s most celebrated living composer JASON ROBERT BROWN, will open March 12 with a dream cast led by KATE BALDWIN and AARON LAZAR, directed by HUNTER FOSTER.

If you’re looking forward to this new Axelrod production,

you’re in excellent company: 


“When Marsha Norman and I began writing THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, we knew two things: we had to build on the legacy of this iconic novel, and we had to have the best singers in the world. Knowing that Kate Baldwin and Aaron Lazar are bringing their extraordinary voices and their brilliant open-hearted acting to this material means that we can rest easy, this production will fulfill all of our greatest ambitions. I can’t wait to hear and see this exciting new production at Axelrod!” JASON ROBERT BROWN
