Tone is the secret behind the tragically soon-to-close Broadway production of Jason Robert Brown’s lovely, heartfelt and thought-filled musical, The Bridges of Madison County. The theatrical reimagining of the raw material strikes a tone of compassion and complexity that is virtually alien to the Harlequin romance/Lifetime Movie of the Week sensibility of the novel and the film.
Charm, in fact, does go a long, long way, especially when it’s partnered with large dollops of professional polish. A classic example is this classic production of this faux classic musical Nice Work If You Can Get It with Gershwin tunes, the winsome couple Kelli O’ Hara and Matthew Broderick, and helmed by Kathleen Marshall.
