Irish Rep to Present BRIGADOON Concert as Part of Benfit Gala, 6/14
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 by Broadway Stars and a full chorus.
Casting for this concert event will be announced at a later date.
Tickets for the event will cost $100-$250. To purchase tickets, visit online at www.irishrep.org or call 212-727-2737. The Shubert Theatre is located at 225 West 44th Street, New York City.
Founded by Ciarán O'Reilly and Charlotte Moore, The Irish Repertory Theatre opened its doors in September 1988 with Sean O'Casey's The Plough and the Stars. The mission of the theatre was and remains, to bring works by Irish and Irish American masters and contemporary playwrights to American audiences, to provide a context for understanding the contemporary Irish American experience, and to encourage the development of new works focusing on the Irish and Irish American experience, as well as a range of other cultures.
The Irish Repertory Theatre has celebrated the very best in Irish theatre for twenty years, from the masters to the new generation of Irish and Irish American writers who are transforming the stage. More than 32,000 audience members annually attend productions at our theatre in the heart of New York's Off Broadway community. Once here they witness The Irish Repertory Theatre's engaging perspective on the Irish and their unique contributions to the world of drama.
