Onstage, the story opens up to include more characters, more scenes and 19 musical numbers but, at its heart, it’s still about a lonely Iowa farm wife in 1965 (Kristin Markiton) and her unexpected love affair with a traveling photographer (Travis Smith). The show had a three-month run on Broadway in 2014 and a nine-month national tour in 2015/16.
