Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s 2016 hit 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 and author 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 transforms both of their lives. Propelled by an ensemble of musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances. BRIGHT STAR is an uplifting, humorous and emotional theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, and is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful. Nominated for 5 Tony Awards (including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book), BRIGHT STAR is a welcome Pittsburgh premiere!

"Almost everyone in “Bright Star” is a star!"

- Michael "Buzz" Buzelli, 'Burgh Vivant

"The beauty this production and all productions of Front Porch Theatricals lie in their propinquity with Pittsburgh talent. Showcasing this talent in productions like Bright Star makes for an experience that is felt from the heart." 

- Dylan Shaffer, BroadwayWorld

"Shimmering throughout is the score, played by a nine-piece orchestra of banjo, mandolin, fiddle, etc., led by musical polymath Doug Levine." 

- Chris Rawson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
