The Bridges of Madison County: The Musical Soundtrack Debuts at #1

Filed under: Performing Arts,Popular Music — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 16:08


The absolutely beautiful, gorgeous, and powerful music from the Broadway musical The Bridges of Madison County, immortalized on soundtrack from Ghostlight Records, was released this week for digital download on iTunes. And while sadly the show is struggling to attract an audience in New York, the soundtrack debuted as the #1 most purchased Broadway Cast Recording on the digital downloads chart, #2 most purchased soundtrack (behind Disney’s mega-hit Frozen), and landed at the #14 spot overall. The music and lyrics for the show are written by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown, the masterful composer of the musical Parade, which also features incredibly moving, melodic, and lush orchestrations and lyrics.

The Bridges of Madison County soundtrack can be digitally downloaded from iTunes now; and it will be released to retailers nationwide on May 29th. Tickets for The Bridges of Madison County can be purchased directly from the show’s Web site at: http://bridgesofmadisoncountymusical.com/tickets/. If you’re going to be in NYC and are planning a trip to Broadway, THIS is the show to see.

Below, watch footage of stars Kelli O’Hara and Steven Pasquale recording the absolutely beautiful song “One Second And A Million Miles.” You’ll quickly see just why the music from this show is one of the best Broadway scores you’ll ever hear.
