I can remember going to my very first Broadway show, The Lion King, with my mom. Growing up right outside NYC, basketball games at Madison Square Garden, daytime games at Yankee Stadium, and Christmas time with the Rockettes at Radio City were the norm, but something about Broadway completely captivated me.
Now actually living in the city, I sometimes take for granted how accessible Broadway shows can be. I do my best to see a new show every couple of months, with or without the children. Last week, I was invited to preview the new musical BRIGHT STAR at the Cort Theatre, and I brought my sister Amanda along, as my date!
Grammy winners Steve Martin and Edie Brickell bring us this new musical about the stories we tell… and the ones we don’t. Directed by Tony winner Walter Bobbie and inspired by a real event, this romantic musical tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption, set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. I don’t think I should spill anymore details, because I wouldn’t want to give any spoilers.
BRIGHT STAR is something like I’ve never seen before, it was an uplifting performance that kept us on the edge of our seats the entire time. Both my sister and I left with one thing to say, “it was so good.” Psyched to offer you all the discount code BSBLOG303 for tickets for performances thru 6/12/16. visit www.telechargeoffers.com
