Following the Broadway run, the musical, which tells the story of an Iowa farm wife and her brief love affair with an intrepid photographer, will embark on a national tour, also directed by Tony winner Sher, beginning in the fall of 2015. On the design team are Michael Yeargan (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Donald Holder (lighting design), and Jon Weston (sound design).

The Bridges of Madison County played a tryout run at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in the summer of 2014.
