THE SUN’S GONNA SHINE AGAIN!! Steve Martin, Edie Brickell, and the original Broadway cast of the smash hit Bright Star: A New Musical are reuniting for a one night only concert at The Town Hall this evening. Get ready to hear those incredible Tony and Grammy nominated bluegrass tunes performed by the Martin, Brickell, and the cast along with a Q&A portion hosted by Peter Asher (who produced the original cast recording). Please note this is not a full concert staging of the entire show.
In addition for more exciting news, the concert will be live streamed tonight on TheaterMania at 7:30pm.
Following it’s acclaimed runs at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego and at the The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC, BRIGHT STAR played Broadway’s Cort Theatre for the 2015-2016 season running for 30 previews and 106 regular performances. It was nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical but lost all of it’s categories. It closed due to disappointing ticket sales (even though the reviews were positive) and it’s 0 Tony wins. Most recently, the show’s cast album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album. No plans for a National Tour have been announced yet.
Who is excited?
