The new musical The Bridges of Madison County, based on the novel by Robert James Waller has plenty going for it. Unfortunately, it is never quite enough to overcome the periods of boredom. It doesn't peek your interest or make you care until the second act. Act one is a long setup for what explodes emotionally in act two. Marsha Norman's book, while at times slow, uninteresting and populated with extraneous characters, will make your heart ache by the end. What should be an intimate story is cluttered with distractions like a hovering cast of characters that is continually onstage, even in the most intimate of moments. These characters don't propel the plot.
