Steve Martin, Edie Brickell turn out hit with new bluegrass musical, 'Bright Star'

Comedic legend Steve Martin and Grammy award winning singer / songwriter Edie Brickell are the star power behind the new musical, Bright Star.

The bluegrass infused tale is on stage now at the Kennedy Center and tells a story of love and redemption in America’s south in the 1920's and 1940's.

Martin told FOX 5’s Allison Seymour that he and Brickell had worked on two albums together and the two had toured together before the musical came to be.

"We knew our songs were narrative in spirit and melodic in spirit - and we thought, hmmm….that's actually quite good for musical, and we started talking over ideas and here we are three years later," he said.
