Bright Star comes to Cumberland County Playhouse
The Cumberland County Playhouse has been a wonderful client of Plateau Creative and we are pleased to support them as they bring “Bright Star” the musical, to Tennessee.
For the first time since leaving Broadway, Bright Star tells the story of Alice Murphy’s life set in the 1920’s and 40’s.
This tale is inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated bluegrass and Gospel enthused score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and struggle set in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains.
When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past. Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies, and powerfully moving performances. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
