Brigadoon tells the story of a mysterious Scottish village that appears through the mist for one day every hundred years.
When two cynical and jaded New Yorkers stumble across the “Bridge O’Doon,” entering the village on the very day of its once-a-century appearance, they are seduced by its charm and astonished by its story. A love story strong enough to re-arrange time and space ensues when one of the strangers has to choose between returning to the life he left behind and a life with his love in Brigadoon.
One of the most lush and beautiful scores ever on a Broadway stage – including “Almost Like Being in Love,” “Waitin’ For My Dearie,” “Come To Me, Bend To Me,” and “Brigadoon,” – will be performed.
Like the legend of Brigadoon, a night like this may not appear for another hundred years.
“I knew many of my friends would feel envious when I described what I had seen….truly singular production…
‘a Brigadoon built of fire.’” – Ben Brantley, New York Times
