About Bright Star

This five-time Tony-nominated musical tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption, inspired by a real event, and set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the ’20s and ’40s. Featuring an energetic and unique bluegrass score and propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies, and powerfully moving performances.

When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past. What she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, "Bright Star" is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.

Written by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell
