Bright Star, book and story written by Steve Martin, lyrics and music by Edie Brickell is a lovely piece of musical theatre, telling a story of hope and the strength of love with songs played by banjo, mandolin, piano, bass, guitar and violin (on stage) and sung and acted by wonderfully talented singers and actors of this equity tour. The story takes place in two time settings, 1923 and 1946. We follow Miss Alice Murphy, beautifully played by Audrey Cardwell, over a 22-year span of time. We first meet her in 1945, as an adult with a high-powered job as a magazine editor-in-chief but then we actually see her walk out of her shoes and turn into the young girl she was in 1923. As we follow her story back and forth through time, we wait to see what truths she will know and how those truths will effect her life and the lives of others who were also involved. The folk-flavor of the music is delightful and easy to listen to as the story musically unfolds before us. Patrick Cummings as Jimmy Ray shows strength yet not enough to overcome his weakness when he learns the truth. Lucy and Daryl, played by Kaitlyn Davidson and Jeff Blumenkrantz are so enjoyable in their scenes, you'll wish there were more of them. Henry Gottfried as Billy Cane is the young writer in search of his voice, but what he finds enriches his life so much more. Bright Star is playing at the Winspear through June 24th. You'll be sorry if you miss it!! The story was inspired by true events!
