Whatever Wednesday - Bright Star

 Sunday afternoon in Hurst TX - Artisan Theater presented Bright Star, a  Tony nominated show created by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell. 

This was a really lovely local production. The talent was outstanding - vocals, acting, sets, etc.  Wow and kudos. 

This musical takes place in North Carolina in 1923-24 and also 1945-46.  As it goes back and forth in time, we see a story unfold about two young lovers who were not destined to be together.  We also follow a story about a young man destined for writing greatness.  So many paths cross.  Hearts broken. Reconciliation.  Oh man, this tugs the heartstrings. 

So, good story.  Very good songs.  Excellent vocals. 

Fun afternoon.

Support your local theater companies.  These folks are working hard and singing  their hearts out.
