Brigadoon is the story of New Yorkers Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas who get lost on their vacation to the Scottish Highlands, and stumble upon Brigadoon, a mythical village that appears for one day every hundred years. Tommy – who has a fiance in New York – soon falls in love with Fiona, a young woman from Brigadoon. And as Tommy learns, to fall in love means staying forever.
Rohan Browne, Australia’s leading man of song and dance, stars as Tommy and soprano Genevieve Kingsford makes her Production Company debut as Fiona. The legendary Nancye Hayes is the matriarch Mrs Forsythe, the heart and soul of Brigadoon. Elise McCann is the hilarious Meg, who looks for love in all the wrong places. Luke Joslin is Jeff, Tommy’s fun but cynical best friend who doesn’t believe in love. Also starring Stefanie Jones, Matthew Manahan, Stephen Hall, Sally Bourne and Joel Granger.
Lerner and Loewe, who created Gigi, My Fair Lady and Camelot, created some of their best loved standards for Brigadoon – Almost Like Being In Love, I’ll Go Home With Bonnie Jean and The Heather on The Hill.
Director Jason Langley, Musical Director Michael Tyack and Costume Designer Isaac Lummis who created Dusty last season, return for Brigadoon. They are joined by an incredible creative team.
Brigadoon features a cast of 28, a band of 21 and a real-life piper playing Scottish bagpipes.
