BRIGADOON

Jul 17, 2018 - Jul 22, 2018

Benedum Center

A GORGEOUS TRIBUTE TO THE POWER OF TRUE LOVE
When New Yorkers Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas lose their way during a vacation to the Scottish Highlands, they stumble into the mythical village of Brigadoon on the one day every hundred years it appears. Tommy, who is engaged back in New York, falls head over heels for villager Fiona, while Jeff enjoys a harmless flirtation with Meg Brockie. But a twist of fate reveals the complicated truth — if any resident leaves Brigadoon, the town and the people in it will be lost forever. Tommy is forced to choose between returning to the world that he knows or taking a chance on life and love in a mysterious new place. Including such famous hits as “The Heather on the Hill” and “Waitin’ for my Dearie,” Lerner and Loewe’s BRIGADOON has a score sure to sweep you off your feet. It’s “Almost Like Being in Love.”
