Bright Star at Belk Theatre
June 30, 2018
NOW ON NATIONAL TOUR!
After it's off-Broadway debut at Barter Theatre, Bright Star is now on national tour and coming to the Belk Theatre in Charlotte.
Bright Star, a musical written and composed by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, tells the story of a woman at two different points in her life: the first, when she is a wild young thing growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina; the second, when she is a well-to-do magazine editor in Asheville, 22 years later.
As a young teen in Zebulon, NC, Alice Murphy is hopelessly in love with small town heartthrob Jimmy Ray, the mayor’s son. Although their love was pure, it falls victim to the interference of ambitious parents, and their infant son is whisked away.
More than two decades later, Alice is the editor of The Asheville Southern Journal, and meets a promising young writer named Billy. Eventually they realize that they share a hometown, and when Alice sees the handmade sweater she knitted for her baby twenty years before in his personal belongings, she realizes that he is the son she lost so long ago.
Bright Star received five Tony Award nominations including Best Musical and was the winner of the Drama Desk award for outstanding music.
