WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Kelli O'Hara (The King and I), Patrick Wilson (All My Sons), Robert Fairchild (An American in Paris), and Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show) star in a concert production of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's musical Brigadoon, directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon (An American in Paris), with music director Rob Berman leading the Encores! orchestra. The first performance, on November 15, is City Center's annual gala, honoring City Center board co-chair and Broadway producer Stacey Mindich. An additional five performances follow from November 16 through 19. Funds raised at all six performances of Brigadoon will allow City Center to make the best in the performing arts accessible to the widest possible audience by subsidizing affordable tickets throughout the year to programs such as Fall for Dance and Encores! Off-Center.

Before My Fair Lady and Camelot, there was Brigadoon, Lerner and Loewe's transcendent romantic fantasy about the past, the present, and what it means to (almost) be in love. The classic 1947 musical, now 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.
