Bright Star

Bright Star is inspired by a true story, but sharing that story would spoil the ending of Steve Martin’s bluegrass melodrama.  I will say that, like Waitress, a potentially sunny rom-com is given stakes by a cruel antagonist. While the book and score have drawn lukewarm reviews the critics have high praise for leading lady Carmen Cusack.

Nominated for 5 Tony Awards.

Today's comic is inspired by the work of Max Fleischer.
