BILLY LYNN'S LONG HALFTIME WALK

STEVE MARTIN (NORM OGLESBY) is one of the most well-known and pervasive talents in entertainment. His work has earned him an Academy Award, five Grammy awards, an Emmy, the Mark Twain Award, and the Kennedy Center Honor.

Martin began his career on "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" (1967-1969), for which he earned his first Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing Achievement in Comedy, Variety or Music in 1969. In the mid 1970s, Martin shone as a stand-up on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" and NBC's "Saturday Night Live." Martin's films are widely popular successes and are the kind of movies that are viewed again and again: The Jerk (1979), Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987), Roxanne (1987), Parenthood (1989), L.A. Story (1991), Father of the Bride (1991), and Bowfinger (1999).

As an author, Martin's work includes the novel An Object of Beauty, the play Picasso at the Lapin Agile, a collection of comic pieces, Pure Drivel, a bestselling novella, Shopgirl, and his memoir Born Standing Up. His writing often appears in The New Yorker.

His latest play, Meteor Shower debuted at the San Diego's Old Globe Theater this past August. The show broke records and has become one of the most successful shows in Globe history. Meteor Shower will be at the Long Wharf Theater in Connecticut from September 21 till October 16th.

Steve Martin is also an accomplished Grammy Award-winning, boundary-pushing bluegrass banjoist and composer. In 2013, Steve Martin released his third full-length album called Love Has Come For You, a unique collaboration with songwriter Edie Brickell. Love Has Come For You, won a Grammy for "Best American Roots Song" for the title track and inspired the Broadway musical Bright Star. Bright Star received five Tony Award nominations and also received Outstanding New Broadway Musical and Outstanding New Score at the Outer Critics Circle Awards. Martin and Brickell's second album together, So Familiar, was released on Rounder Records last October, featuring 12 remarkable new songs that bring the acclaimed duo's musical collaboration into fresh creative territory.
