Music by Frederick Loewe
Book and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner

When New Yorkers Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas get lost on a vacation in the Scottish Highlands, they stumble into Brigadoon. Brigadoon is a mythical village that appears for a single day once every hundred years. After falling head over heels for the headstrong Fiona, Tommy is forced to choose between returning to the world that he knows—or taking a chance on love in a mysterious new place. Including such famous hits as “Heather on the Hill” and “Almost Like Being in Love,” Lerner and Loewe’s Brigadoon has music that will sweep you off your feet coupled with a whimsical story that is a tribute to the power of true love.

For all Brigadoon performance tickets, please call (314) 968-7128.
