Bright Star was a musical that opened on Broadway on February 26, 2016. It was written by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell. Although, it was nominated for numerous theater awards and even won a few. It closed on June 26, 2016. On Monday December 12, 2016 a one-night only reunion concert was held at Town Hall in New York City. The sold-out concert was livestreamed on Theatermania.com.
Me - I never got to see Bright Star on Broadway, but I wanted to see it. It didn't run very long. I was excited to hear that they were having a reunion concert. At first, I didn't know it was a only a concert though. I thought it was the whole show. I was sad when I heard the concert was sold-out because I wanted to see it. I was happy to find out the concert was going to be live streamed. During the concert even though it wasn't the whole play they talked enough so that you could understand what was going on. The show was about a woman who had a baby at a young age and was forced to give him up for adoption. I really liked the music a lot. I especially liked Sun Is Gonna Shine, Ashville, Always Will, and If You Knew My Story. The story was interesting. The singing was beautiful. After I saw the livestream, I was even more sorry that I didn't get to see the show. The live stream was amazing! It is still better to see a show or concert in person, but if you can't that's the next best thing because at least you get to see it.
And that's our view. What would you like to see live streamed?
