BRIGADOON doesn’t live up to Lerner and Loewe’s legacy
Lerner and Loewe's Brigadoon--Part Three | Preserve …
Brigadoon is a musical with a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner, and music by Frederick Loewe. Songs from the musical, such as “Almost Like Being in Love”, have become standards. Americans Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas, on a hunting vacation in Scotland, discover a quaint and beautiful village, Brigadoon. Strangely, the village is not on any map, and soon Tommy and Jeff find out why: Brigadoon is an enchanted place. It appears once every hundred years for one day, then disappears back into the mists of time, to wake up to its next day a century hence. When Tommy falls in love with Fiona, a girl of the village, he realizes that she can never be part of his life back in America. Can he be part of hers in Brigadoon?

As we mentioned in the last post, we have often discussed the work of Lerner and Loewe in previous posts; but, as we look back, the comments were fragmented over many posts. We thought it would be best to go back and look again, this time in a unified manner, much like we did for Annie Get Your Gun, The Band Wagon and Kiss Me, Kate.
