Bluegrass Musical

Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated blue-grass score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. The arrival of a young soldier just home from World War II, sets Alice Murphy on a journey to understand her past; what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daring and hopeful.
