An original play with music, written by Howard Fishman and featuring the songs and letters of the obscure American singer, guitarist and composer Connie Converse (1924-?). "Incredible, as was she; the show had me transfixed, joyful, and grateful. It reminded me, yet again, of what art is for." - THE NEW YORKER "A STAR HAS BURNT MY EYE" has had work-in-progress showings at The Rattlestick Theater, Abrons Arts Center, Joe's Pub at The Public Theater, at the Vox Festival at Dartmouth College, at The Brick Theater in Brooklyn, NY, featuring the performers Howard Fishman, Charlotte Mundy, Jean Rohe and Liam Robinson in a workshop production directed by Sarah Hughes, and most recently at Celebration Barn in Paris, Maine, and at the Orchard Project.
