Bright Star

By Edie Brickell and Steve Martin
November 15-19, 2023
Gates-Abegglen Theatre

Inspired by a true story, 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. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
