The show, with songs by Jason Robert Brown and a book by Marsha Norman, will debut at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts this August and then land at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater in January. Previews begin Jan. 13.

Norman won a Tony for writing “‘night, Mother” and Brown wrote the Tony nominated “Parade” and “The Last Five Years.”

Based on Robert Waller’s best-selling novel, the story features Iowa’s covered bridges as the focal point for a romance between a woman and a photographer.

Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood co-starred in the 1995 film version, which Eastwood also directed.
