Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara and Steven Pasquale, who starred opposite each other in 2014’s The Bridges of Madison County, will lead a concert staging of Brigadoon at New York City Center. The production will begin with a November 15 gala honoring producer Stacey Mindich and run through November 19.
Also appearing in the Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe musical will be An American in Paris Tony nominee Robert Fairchild. Christopher Wheeldon, who won a Tony for choreographing that musical, will direct and choreograph the concert staging. Music Director Rob Berman will lead the Encores! Orchestra.
O'Hara won a Tony Award in 2015 for her performance in The King and I; she was previously nominated for The Bridges of Madison County, Nice Work If You Can Get It, South Pacific, The Pajama Game, and The Light in the Piazza. She recently starred in Roundabout Theatre Company's benefit reading of Kiss Me, Kate and will headline Mastervoices' Babes in Toyland April 27.
Pasquale made his Broadway debut in Reasons to Be Pretty prior to appearing in Bridges. His additional credits include The Robber Bridegroom, The Wild Party and Carousel on stage and Rescue Me on screen.
Fairchild earned a Tony nomination for his performance as Jerry Mulligan in An American in Paris, which marked his Broadway debut. He also appeared alongside O'Hara in Roundabout's Kiss Me, Kate benefit.
Brigadoon premiered on Broadway in 1947 and tells the story of Tommy and Jeff, 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, a young woman who immediately catches the eye of Tommy.
