Ghostlight Records' album of New York City Center's Brigadoon is released in physical, digital, and streaming formats December 7. The album preserves City Center's November 2017 gala production, led by Tony Award winner Kelli O'Hara and Patrick Wilson, along with Stephanie J. Block and Robert Fairchild.
Watch O'Hara and Wilson record "Always Like Being in Love" in our exclusive video above.
The beloved 1947 musical follows Tommy Albright (Wilson), an American who finds himself in an idyllic town in the Scottish Highlands that only appears for one day each century. He falls in love with Fiona MacLaren (O'Hara), a relationship that threatens doom for the entire town. The classic score includes such favorites as "The Heather on the Hill," "Almost Like Being in Love," "There But for You Go I," and the choral title song.
The production was directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon (An American in Paris), with Jack Viertel serving as artistic advisor. The Encores! orchestra was led by production music director Rob Berman.
City Center's gala production marked the work's 70th anniversary, and this album celebrates book writer and lyricist Alan Jay Lerner's centennial. The album is produced by Lawrence Manchester, Berman, Emily Altman, and Kurt Deutsch.
The cast also includes Patricia Delgado, Sara Esty, Rich Hebert, Jamie Jackson, Ross Lekites, Aasif Mandvi, and Dakin Matthews, with an ensemble comprising Mark Aldrich, Giselle O. Alvarez, Florrie Bagel, Callan Bergmann, Ward Billeisen, Peter Chursin, Peyton Crim, Christine DiGiallonardo, Rebecca Eichenberger, Anastacia Holden, Andrea Jones-Sojola, Jules-Romay Joseph, Timothy McDevitt, David Scott Purdy, Nicholas Ranauro, Lindsay Roberts, Shannon Rugani, Carly Blake Sebouhian, Lucas Segovia, Gabriela M.
