New Hazlett Theater
Inspired by a real event, Broadway’s 2016 hit BRIGHT STAR by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell tells a sweeping tale of love, family secrets and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. Propelled by song, story and dance, BRIGHT STAR unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful bluegrass melodies and powerfully moving performances. Promising an uplifting, humorous and emotional theatrical journey that’ll hold you tight in its grasp, BRIGHT STAR is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful. Nominated for five Tony Awards (including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book) and featuring a Grammy-nominated score, you won’t want to miss this Pittsburgh professional premiere by Front Porch Theatricals!
