'Brigadoon' is a mythical and magical village located in the Scottish Highlands. Two unsuspecting travelers from the United States stumble upon the town while hunting and are immediately swept up in the activities of the townsfolk whose home only appears for one day every one hundred years.



Tommy, who is unhappy with his mundane life in the States, is immediately drawn into the lives of the villagers who are wonderfully untouched by the modern word He meets and becomes fascinated with a lovely Scottish girl, Fiona, and his life will never be the same.



Tommy's friend Jeff is less enchanted by the surroundings, but he too is eventually caught up in what is happening in Brigadoon, becoming reluctantly entangled with the fetching maid Meg. The villagers are eager with anticipation as the wedding of two young people, Charlie and Jeannie approaches, and the exciting day progresses from eager anticipation to wistful realization that the magical day must end and not come again for a hundred years.



Tommy must make the decision to return to his life in New York or remain in the highlands, and his reluctant return to his old life is soon regretted. Somehow he must return to Brigadoon and to Fiona.



'Brigadoon' is filled with beautiful music, including, in addition to the lovely title song, 'Almost Like Being in Love', 'The Heather on the Hill', 'Come to Me, Bend to Me', and 'There But For You Go I'.



Book and lyrics for 'Brigadoon are by Alan Jay Lerner, and music is by Frederick Loewe The musical opened on Broadway in 1947.



Gene Kelley and Van Johnson appeared as the Americans in the movie version of the musical released in 1954. Cyd Charisse was the lovely Fiona.

Exclusive InDepth InterView: Melissa Errico & LEGRAND AFFAIR; DRACULA To SUNDAY IN THE PARK... & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 17, 2011

Today we are featuring the luminescent and golden-voiced Melissa Errico and talking to her all about her sumptuous new album LEGRAND AFFAIR - featuring the music of famed Broadway and Hollywood composer Michel Legrand - and how the labor of love five years in the making has finally come to light with this week's highly-anticipated release of the romantic and moving album. In addition to analyzing the process of putting the project together alongside the legendary Legrand, Errico also shares her thoughtful and passionate insights into the many different worlds inherent in the evocative songs themselves - many with lyrics by Barbra Streisand's constant collaborators, Alan and Marilyn Bergman - and how closely Errico worked with album producers Phil Ramone and Richard Jay-Alexander on perfecting the sound, style, mood and final song list of LEGRAND AFFAIR. Additionally, Errico and I also travel back in time and touch upon her many notable stage appearances over the years - including illustrative comments on her Broadway debut in MY FAIR LADY, as well as starring in HIGH SOCIETY, FINIAN'S RAINBOW, DRACULA, Legrand's own AMOUR, and, most recently, WHITE CHRISTMAS - and she also shares her excitement for the upcoming tenth anniversary reunion concert of SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at the Kennedy Center in 2012, co-starring Raul Esparza. Plus, news on her forthcoming appearance on Patrick Wilson's A GIFTED MAN on CBS and all the details on her charity organization, Bowery Babes, as well as much, much more! (more...)
