Hoofin’ and Heroes in the Valley

By Steven Libowitz   |   July 18, 2023

It’s not necessary to be a big fan of bluegrass music to enjoy PCPA Theaterfest’s Bright Star, the Tony-nominated musical created by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell playing at Solvang Festival Theater through July 23. But it sure helps. Based on real events in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the show has a gentle pace, with the first half taking its sweet mountain time to develop and engage our empathy. But the evening eventually ends up with a heart-warming few minutes, and the acting and contagiously choreographed dancing under the stars are reason enough to check it out.
