About Bright Star

From Grammy, Emmy and Academy award-winning Steve Martin and Grammy award-winning Edie Brickell comes Bright Star, the five-time Tony nominated new Broadway musical that the New York Times called "a shining achievement." Directed by Tony winner Walter Bobbie and inspired by a real event, this original musical tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ‘40s. 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. Bright Star, as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful, is “Broadway’s most beautiful show” (WABC).
