Music, Book, and Story by Steve Martin

Music, Lyrics, and Story by Edie Brickell

Directed by Paul Daigneault

2016 Tony Award Nominee for Best Musical! Created by comedy legend Steve Martin and Grammy winner Edie Brickell, Bright Star is a sweeping tale of love and redemption set in the American South during the 1920s and ‘40s. This richly emotional story weaves together two chapters in the life of literary editor Alice Murphy: the first, as a young backwoods girl in love with the son of a prominent family; and the second, as mentor to a young soldier just back from the war. Propelled by a rousing country and bluegrass score, and brimming with charm, Bright Star is a refreshingly original and daringly hopeful new entry in the musical theatre canon.
