Music, book and story by Steve Martin and music, lyrics and story by Edie Brickell.

Inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony®-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping 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 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—and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives.

Directed by Angie Toomsen, music director Janelle Lauer, choreographed by Bo Frazier, scenic and lighting by S. Benjamin Farrar, costumes by Joni Dee Sackett.
