Get Ready For Broadway’s New Revered Diva: Bright Star’s Carmen Cusack
Carmen Cusack makes her Broadway debut as Alice Murphy, the powerful literary editor with a heartbreaking past, in Steve Martin and Edie Brickell’s original musical Bright Star, and if there’s any justice in the world, Cusack will soon be canonized as Broadway nerds’ new favorite diva.
Cusack has only appeared in NYC once before, as Carrie's gym teacher, Miss Gardner; but she's had a fantastic regional and West End career, which we are going down the rabbit hole with right now—bootlegs & all.
