Audiences = 4.0

A new musical set in North Carolina in the 1920s and '40s, involving hidden identities, tragedy, and young love, with a bluegrass-inflected score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell.

The Broadway production of Bright Star closed June 26, 2016. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

From the producers: Inspired by an astonishing true event, the wholly original new musical "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 successful literary editor Alice Murphy meets an ambitious young soldier just home from World War II, their connection inspires Alice to confront a shocking incident from her past. Together they discover a long-buried secret with the power to transform their lives.

"Bright Star" arrives on Broadway following an engagement at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The musical had its world premiere at San Diego's Old Globe in 2014.

Though Steve Martin is best known for his comedic roles, he's also a Grammy-winning, lifelong banjo player who has dedicated recent years to musical projects more than Hollywood productions. Edie Brickell has enjoyed a decades-long recording career as both a solo artist and a frontwoman, most notably for the the New Bohemians, which released its debut album in 1988.

Their collaboration has produced two albums - 2013's "Love Has Come For You," which earned them a Grammy for Best American Roots Song, and "So Familiar," released in 2015.
