The album is being produced by Kurt Deutsch, Lawrence Manchester, Rob Bermanand Emily Altman.Before My Fair Lady and Camelot there was Brigadoon, Lerner & Loewe's transcendent romantic fantasy about the past, the present, and what it means to (almost) be in love. The classic 1947 musical, celebrating its 70th anniversary, follows Tommy Albright (Wilson), a jaded New Yorker who gets lost in the Scottish Highlands and stumbles into an idyllic town that only appears for one day every century. He quickly becomes smitten with the headstrong Fiona MacLaren (O'Hara) and makes an enemy of the rebellious Harry Beaton (Fairchild), bringing about a chain of events that could spell doom for the entire town.The show stars Stephanie J. Block, Patricia Delgado, Sara Esty, Robert Fairchild, Rich Hebert, Jamie Jackson, Ross Lekites, Aasif Mandvi, Dakin Matthews, Kelli O'Hara and Patrick Wilson. The rest of the cast includes Mark Aldrich, Giselle O. Alvarez, FlorrieBagel, Callan Bergmann, Ward Billeisen, Peter Chursin, Peyton Crim, Christine DiGiallonardo, Rebecca Eichenberger, Anastacia Holden, Andrea Jones-Sojola, Jules-Romay Joseph, Timothy McDevitt, David Scott Purdy, Nicholas Ranauro, Lindsay Roberts, Shannon Rugani, Carly Blake Sebouhian, Lucas Segovia, Gabriela M. Soto,Madison Stratton, Emily Tate, Ron Todorowski and Nicholas Ward.New York City Center thanks The Frederick Loewe Foundation for its lead sponsorship in support of this special production of Brigadoon, which was originally presented November 15-19, 2017.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now please someone put this production back on somewhere?
I'm so happy! I've been dying to hear Ross Lekites' "Come to Me, Bend to Me" again.

No diss to any ensemble members, but that guy deserves to be LEAD of a Broadway show. Magnificent talent!

Magnificent talent!"I felt the exact same way!
FYI, Ross is playing Tony for the Boston Pops production of West Side Story in June.
I’ve never seen the show performed live, but I’d love a cast album that makes me want to see it live.The movie version is OK...but just OK.
This production was SO lovely-- I'm very excited. I wish we could get a recording of Grand Hotel as well (the voices were wonderful and there's just so much cut from the original cast recording).
Omg best late news !!!
Pleasant surprise, I find the current complete recording to be rather lackluster.
This is EXCITING!!!!!!! From time to time I just go to youtube and watch the clips version to hear Kelli, Patrick, Stephanie, and Ross sing! Plus one here on wanting to hear Ross sing "Come to me Bend to me"... in the clip below, skip to 1:35 to hear Ross sing:
Wonderful news! I wish The New Yorkers had received the same treatment. I don't think that score has ever even been recorded and I thought for sure one of the labels would take it on. It's Cole Porter!

I'm happy to have a new Brigadoon, but The New Yorkers was a great reconstruction of an unrecorded show. PLEASE!!!
Encores released an album of Pipe Dream that came from a live recording of one of the performances, but here they say that they are going to record it. I guess that implies not using something that's already recorded.
Looks like it will indeed be a studio recording: https://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Photo-Coverage-Patrick-Wilson-Kelli-OHara-and-More-Head-Into-the-Studio-for-the-BRIGADOON-Cast-Recording-20180514
Any inkling of what date this will be released on?
Overjoyed at this news. Almost as overjoyed as I became watching this show.Thrilled but not surprised that I'm not the only one longing to hear Ross's "Come to Me, Bend to Me" again. Though I wish I could see it again. The choreography of that number was breathtaking.
Is there any tiimeline known for this?
Love the show (one of my all time favorites; the other is "Carousel"
