“Bright Star,” the new musical from Grammy®, Emmy® and Academy Award®-winning Steve Martin and Grammy Award®-winning Edie Brickell, opens at Pioneer Theatre Company, running January 12 – 27, 2018. Tickets are available at https://tickets.pioneertheatre.org
“Bright Star,” with direction by Tony Award® winner Walter Bobbie and choreography by Josh Rhodes, won the 2016 Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music. It also received five 2016 Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book, Best Lead Actress in a Musical, and Best Orchestrations.
Inspired by a real event, this original musical tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances. “Bright Star”-as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful-is a “shining achievement” (The New York Times).
