    Inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony®-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s BRIGHT STAR 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. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past—and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tightly in its grasp, BRIGHT STAR is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.

    A modern-day musical love story, I LOVE YOU BECAUSE is a sweet and funny romantic comedy based on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The Wall Street Journal called it "everything an off-Broadway musical should be ... a charming piece of work that will send you home smiling," and The New York Times concurred, praising it as "terrific, refreshing fun filled with wit and zest." And the acclaimed pop-jazz score by the new writing team of Ryan Cunningham & Joshua Salzman was hailed as "impressive, distinctive, tuneful and smart."
