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!

S.T.A.G.E. (Society for Theatrical Artists' Guidance and Enhancement) is Dallas/Fort Worth's premier performing artists' organization. A membership organization, S.T.A.G.E. promotes the theatrical, broadcast, and film industries, serving as an information clearinghouse, and providing training and education in many facets of the entertainment industry in the North Central Texas Region.
Leslie Evans-Leach approached P.L. Moore with the idea of an organization that would serve as a source of information for area theatrical artists. The idea was the result of frustration shared by local performers who frequently learned of auditions AFTER they had occured. Leslie and P.L. expanded their collaboration to include a small group of local performers, and in 1981, the Society for Theatrical Artists' Guidance and Enhancement was formed. With Leslie Evans-Leach as Executive Director, Janice L. Franklin as Managing Director, and P.L. Moore as President of the Board of Directors, S.T.A.G.E. opened its doors in an office building adjacent to the Esquire Theatre at the intersection of Oaklawn and Lemmon in Dallas, Texas.
STAGE is happy to continue serving the Dallas and Fort Worth (DFW) arts community. STAGE would like to acknowledge the actors, directors, producers, writers, theaters and other members of the performing arts community that have made STAGE a success. Please visit many of them on our links page if you would like more information on the entertainment scene in DFW--some links are from Hollywood and beyond.
STAGE - ONLINE has played a vital role, recently, in communicating the information needed to make the DFW artists more up-to-date on the Dallas area "buzz" and network. Stage-online will continue to expand and, with all hopes, grow with and for the entertainment & performing arts artists, centers and all venues in North Texas.
