March 18 through April 3
From Grammy, Emmy, and Academy Award-winning Steve Martin and Grammy Award-winning Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star comes to Town Theatre. Be transformed by a sweeping tale of fate and family 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 her past. Bright Star is their story. Spanning two decades, we meet Alice when she is wild and young, growing up carefree in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and 22 years later as a magazine editor in Asheville. Hope, redemption and love are yours to be found in Bright Star!
