My View: Bright Star – Did I Like It? Did They Like It? Yes!

My View: Bright Star – Did I Like It? Did They Like It? Yes!

Like the good feeling you have after a well prepared comfort food meal, Bright Star leaves you very well satisfied. A touching story by Steve Martin & Edie Brickell with a happy ending and music that keeps you feeling good throughout. It also felt good to be part of an audience that laughed, cried, and enjoyably vibrated with the  blue grass/country rhythms and stirring melodies of the score. Like comfort food, the music and lyrics are wonderful in their intentional simplicity. Patrick Cummings subbed for Paul Alexander Nolan in the performance I was at, and he was powerful in the lead opposite a superb Carmen Cusak. This show will definitely brighten your day.
