Brigadoon was the first big hit for the magical team
of Lerner and Loewe. Inspired by Germelshausen, a german
story by Friedrich Gerstäcker, Brigadoon revolves
around two American tourists, Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas,
who stumble upon a misty little Scottish town. Tommy soon falls
in love with a local lass, Fiona MacLaren, but as the two men
quickly discover, this mysterious little town only reawakens
for one day every hundred years.
Brigadoon opened at the Ziegfeld Theatre on March 13,
1947 and ran for 581 performances. It established Lerner and
Loewe as the successors of Rodgers and Hammerstein. The 1954
screen version featured Gene Kelly , Cyd Charisse, and Van Johnson.
