One of the most intriguing and delightful aspects of a musical show is its ability to open up a whole new world to both its audience and cast. The show that does this better than any other is BRIGADOON. This is a Scottish fantasy about a town that disappears into the Highland mist and returns for only one day every one hundred years. It includes Waitin' for My Dearie, I'll Go Home with Bonnie Jean, Come to Me, Bend to Me, Almost Like Being in Love, There But for You Go I, The Heather on the Hill and My Mother's Weddin' Day. This is a tribute to simplicity, true love and goodness, which is hidden from the ordinary traveler.
BRIGADOON played for 581 performances on Broadway at the Ziegfeld Theatre and for 685 performances in London at His Majesty's Theatre. It has been revived on Broadway several times, most recently in 1980 at the Majestic Theatre, where it played for 133 performances.
