Why See Brigadoon?
a mircle little town
Kelli O'Hara (The King and I) and Patrick Wilson (Fargo) star in this brand new concert staging of the beloved Lerner and Loewe tale of magic and romance in a mysterious village in the Scottish Highlands. Directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon (An American in Paris), this concert staging will revisit the musical that aside from a healthy appriciation of tartan, gave us beautiful ballet interludes and wonderful songs such as 'Almost Like Being in Love'
First seen on Broadway in 1947, Brigadoon captured the public's imagination playing on the long-held view of the romance of the Highlands, where the great lochs and picturesque forests and vistas inspire and move in equal measures.
WHAT IS BRIGADOON ABOUT?
Tommy and Jeff, two New Yorkers, are hopelessly lost on the first day of their vacation to the Scottish Highlands, when they hear mysterious music in the distance. Following it, they stumble upon Brigadoon, a timeless town where nothing is what it seems. Is it a dream? A state of mind?
On discovering Brigadoon doesn't appear on their maps, the townsfolk let them in on their beguiling secret; after being cursed, the town may only appear for one day every 100 years and for an inhabitant to leave would spell disaster. And as Tommy learns, to fall in love means staying forever.
Can he go the distance after meeting the enchanting Fiona? Or will he wake from the dream all to soon? One thing is for certain, no one is the same person after finding Brigadoon.
