Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie (Chicago, Venus in Fur) directs the production that runs through July 14 at Martel Theater on the Vassar College campus in Poughkeepsie, NY. It has a score by Martin ("SNL," "Father of the Bride," "The Jerk") and Brickell of the New Bohemians. Martin also penned the book.

Here's how it's billed: "Bright Star brings to life a stirring story set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The story takes us between 1945 and 1922, as a young man returns from war and uncovers hidden yearnings and dark secrets about his past."
