America’s Brightest Star runs at Railroad Playhouse through November 3rd. Audiences and critics alike have raved:
“Goldberg’s impudent and cheeky comedy makes great fun out of America’s love/hate relationship with fame and reality television…America’s Brightest Star is an impressive beginning for Railroad Playhouse. It would be a shame to let this play leave the station without seeing it.” Cynthia O. Topps, Times Herald Record
A ripe multi-media rapid-fire-succession stage-show embedded with mature scenes…Goldberg developed a dialogue littered with double entendres twirling alongside a subtle metaphor about the life of bees…The play is both funny and avant-garde.” Happy Hudson Valley
“America’s Brightest Star is a carefully crafted tale of innocence inside a laugh out loud dark comedy that by the end, has you somehow rooting for each character.” Jay Long, Hudson Valley Insider
America’s Brightest Star will have its world premiere on October 19, 2012 at Railroad Playhouse in Newburgh, NY. This production, which opens the 2012-13 season, also marks the first full world premiere production by Railroad Playhouse since their launch in 2010. Casting and ticket information will be announced soon.
America’s Brightest Star, a new full-length comedy about fame coming to a small town, will have the first public reading at Railroad Playhouse on Saturday, July 2nd at 8:00pm.
