“Bright Star!”

Stop what you are doing and go see Bright Star on Broadway. IMG_4946With a very simple and touching score, I left the theater singing the beautiful bluegrass infused score. Carmen Cusack as the lead was incredible, I could not take my eyes off of her. I think NYTimes said it best, “At its best, “Bright Star” seduces with its retro roots score and its sincerity in telling an old-fashioned story of love betrayed and redeemed. It has the forthright and, yes, sentimental appeal of a Norman Rockwell painting (he’s respectable again, you know), as well as a plain-spoken charm similar to that of the Jeanine Tesori-Brian Crawley musical “Violet,” revived to acclaim on Broadway last season.”
