Bright Star

Music, Book, & Story by Steve Martin; Music, Lyrics, & Story by Edie Brickell

April 21 - May 14, 2023

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2:30 pm


Set in our very own Blue Ridge Mountains, Bright Star tells the story of Alice at two different points in her life: as a young girl in the mountains, and 22 years later as the well-to-do editor of a successful Asheville magazine. A serendipitous encounter inspires Alice to face her past, and a stunning realization changes her life forever. Bright Star is based on the Grammy Award-winning bluegrass album, Love Has Come for You, and centers particularly on the song “Iron Mountain Baby.” Be sure to listen also for the song with our namesake – “Asheville”!
