What's in store is an authentic theatrical ‘discovery' waiting to be discovered–even better, this new production in Long Beach surely makes it worth discovering! Yes, it can be an emotional, ‘larger-than-life' rollercoaster ride at times, but it's one you'll be thrilled to be taken on.

As great as the first national tour, this MTW production boasts a riveting performance from its star Anna Mintzer. Sets and costumes are from the original production. MTW has another winner with audiences.

Endearing and emotionally sweeping, "Bright Star" is a no-frills, narrative-driven musical that's less about flash and more about its human-connective qualities, the very ones that will likely touch audience members in a much more cerebral, satisfying way.

Kudos to Musical Theatre West for taking a chance on a show its familiarity-loving subscriber base may not know from Adam, a risk that more than pays off in the masterful staging of a largely undiscovered gem. Bright Star shines brightly indeed.

Bright Star is a bittersweet bluegrass musical with music, book and lyrics by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell. It was nominated for five Tony awards when it ran on Broadway and it's easy to see why.
