Bright Star, co-created by Martin and Brickell, is directed by Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Josh Rhodes. It's a story of love and redemption set in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the American South in the 1920s and 1940s, and features bluegrass music. Following the curtain call there was a special bluegrass performance featuring Steve Martin and the show's musician's. Martin also performed at the after party which was held at Gotham Hall in Herald Square. See photos below.
