Bright StarFeaturing the Tony®-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s BRIGHT STAR tells a true tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, they set out to understand her past—and find the power to transform both their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerful characters, BRIGHT STAR is refreshingly genuine and daringly hopeful.
