...Some of the scenes are melodramatic but the characters are so charming that it’s easy to overlook those moments. And on the original sets from Broadway, director and choreographer Richard Gatta does a great job taking us smoothly through the two time periods.

MTW is giving audiences a right.on.the.mark recreation by Richard Gatta of Walter Bobbie's original fluid staging and Josh Rhodes' splended choreography... and the performances, particularly that of Anna Mintzer, are deliriously wonderful.

Gorgeous bluegrass melodies, a leading lady’s incandescent star turn, all-around terrific supporting performances, ingenious staging, and a plot straight out of a 1930s/40s Hollywood weeper will have you crying joyful tears that Musical Theatre West has made Steve Martin and Edie Brickell’s Bright Star its 66th season opener.
