FLORIDA PREMIERE. Inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony®-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Bright Star tells a sweeping musical tale of love and redemption. Set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1940s, literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II who awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past—and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives.

Bright Star with music, book, and story by Steve Martin and music, lyrics, and story by Edie Brickell will play from November 6, 2019 – January 3, 2020 in FST’s Gompertz Theatre. Subscriptions and single tickets are available online by clicking here or by calling the FST Box Office at 941.366.9000.
