The concert staging will also feature Tony Award winner Kelli O'Hara as Fiona MacLaren and Tony nominee Robert Fairchild as Harry Beaton. Christopher Wheeldon will direct and choreograph. Music Director Rob Berman will lead the Encores! Orchestra.

Wilson last appeared on Broadway in the 2008 revival of All My Sons. He had previously earned Tony nominations for his performances in Oklahoma! and The Full Monty. His numerous screen credits include The Phantom of the Opera, The Conjuring, Fargo, and Angels in America, for which he received Golden Globe and Emmy nominations.

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.

Tickets will go on sale exclusively to City Center Members June 21 at noon and to the general public June 26. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
