Riverside Center for the Performing Arts is excited to be one of the first to bring this popular Broadway musical to Virginia. Inspired by real events and featuring the bluegrass-tinged Grammy-nominated Steven Martin and Edie Brickell score, Bright Star is 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.
Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances. An uplifting theatrical journey, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
Enjoy great seats and a plated lunch stage side before the matinee begins.
