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 TheOldGlobe.org.
