Bright Star: A Great Mother’s Day Gift of a Broadway Show

Mother’s Day is around the corner.  And what better gift than tickets to a warm, funny, moving Broadway show, starring an incredible newcomer:  Carmen Cusack.  Tickets to Bright Star, which opened on Broadway this season, would make the perfect Mother’s Gift this year.
