Brigadoon Broadway

'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.

In February of 2018, my good friend Shenandoah Davis paid me a visit. I was having a hard time, I felt a little aimless. We had a vague plan to make a cover album and some recently procured recording gear. She filled my fridge with food and assured me that all would be ok-- we had a good idea. She wasn't wrong.

From the extravagances of 1950s Paris, to the devastation of New York in the 80s and 90s, composer and diarist Ned Rorem captured the essence of what it meant to be gay, an artist and in love. For the first time, his words and his music are brought together in this stunning production.Presented as part of Midsumma Festival at the beloved Melbourne gallery and performance space fortyfivedownstairs, Belinda Hanne Reid: Love, Rorem is an intimate, compelling production, centred around the music and writings of American composer Ned Rorem. A living legend, Rorem is considered in classical music circles internationally as being one of the twentieth-century's greatest composers. Time Magazine labelled him 'the world's best composer of art songs', and his music has won numerous awards, including a Pulitzer Prize and a Grammy. In addition to his music, his work as a writer and diarist also gained him great notoriety. Rorem's frank and unashamed descriptions of his life as a gay man (at time when such issues were considered extraordinarily taboo) were considered scandalous throughout Europe and the US. Through his at times charming, at times naive and at times exhibitionist honesty, he became as The New Yorker described in 2003 'a pioneer for modern gay culture'.

Chi non ha in casa almeno un cd in cui non ci sia una canzone di Andrew Lloyd Weber: che sia un original cast recording, una compilation o semplicemente una cover, le composizioni di Lloyd Weber sono tra le più conosciute canzoni di musical al mondo. Tutti i più grandi interpreti si sono prima o poi cimentati in una delle sue composizioni tanto che sarebbe impossibile citarli tutti. Se i musical di Sir Andrew sono tra i più visti al mondo e detengono record invidiabili di durata in cartellone sia a Broadway che nel West End, altrettanto non si può dire delle versioni cinematografiche che non sempre sono ben riuscite. Cerchiamo di analizzarne il perché.

Each year Portland's Good Theater presents a holiday musical revue, written and directed by Brian P. Allen, and dedicated to celebrating a decade in American musical theatre history. Allen's show this year is devoted to the 1940s when so many of the geniuses of the a?oelegitimatea?? musical theatre style reigned supreme. The revue he has created is ambitious and comprehensive featuring twenty-five performers, including several Broadway actors, and covering the likes of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Lowe, Cole Porter, Kurt Weill, and the Gershwins, together with many lesser-known writers. Performed with the intimacy and informality of a cabaret setting, Broadway at the Good Theater offers a nostalgic and delightful musical evening.
