Stephanie J. Block, a 2017 Tony nominee for her portrayal of Trina in the revival of Falsettos, has joined the cast of New York City Center’s upcoming gala presentation of Brigadoon. The actor will play the role of Meg Brockie, replacing the previously announced Heidi Blickenstaff.
Block has also appeared on Broadway in The Mystery of Edwin Drood (for which she earned her first Tony nomination), The Boy From Oz, The Pirate Queen, Wicked, 9 to 5, and Anything Goes. On screen, she can be seen in a recurring role on the upcoming NBC series Rise.
Brigadoon premiered on Broadway in 1947 and tells the story of Tommy (Wilson) and Jeff (Mandvi), two American tourists who happen upon a peculiar Scottish village that only appears for one day every 100 years: Brigadoon. Among the residents of this village is Fiona (O'Hara), a young woman who immediately catches the eye of Tommy.
