When successful literary editor Alice Murphy meets an ambitious young soldier just home from World War II, their connection inspires Alice to confront her past. Together they discover a stunning secret with the power to transform their lives. From Grammy®- and Emmy®-winner Steve Martin and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Edie Brickell comes this hopeful and heart-swelling new musical.


  • Steve Martin and Edie Brickell previously collaborated on the bluegrass album Love Has Come for You.
  • Mr. Martin is best known as a comedian and film actor, but he is also an accomplished writer, and the author of several plays including the frequently-performed Picasso at the Lapin Agile.


The musical’s world premiere took place at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, CA, in the fall of 2014. The show played a pre-Broadway engagement at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC in the winter of 2015-16.
