Bright Star Shines as Tiger Theatre Company’s Upcoming Musical


Texas High School’s Tiger Theatre Company takes on the musical inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony®-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell.

Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. 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 – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, the musical, based on a true story, unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion.
