Inspired by a real event, 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.
Featuring the Grammy-nominated country, folk, and bluegrass score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, “Bright Star” is an uplifting theatrical journey which is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
