The Old Globe holds Opening Night event for Steve Martin and Edie Brickell’s ‘Bright Star’


The Old Globe recently held an opening night event for the world premiere of “Bright Star,” a new play by playwright/actor Steve Martin and singer-songwriter Edie Brickell. Martin wrote the book with help from Brickell on lyrics. The musical -– based on real events – is “a beautiful journey of joy, discovery, loss and redemption that takes place between 1923 and 1945 in North Carolina,” wrote Diana Saenger in a review for this newspaper group.

“Bright Star” runs through Nov. 2 at 1363 Old Globe Way, Balboa Park. Tickets are available at (619) 23-GLOBE and
