‘Brigadoon’ to preview in Boston

Broadway-bound revival stages Beantown run

The Broadway-bound revival of “Brigadoon” has confirmed its path to the Rialto, with the tuner aiming to bow in Boston in the fall before a Gotham berth in spring 2009.

New incarnation of the tuner by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe (“My Fair Lady”) has a new book by John Guare, the “Six Degrees of Separation” scribe who also has written the book for tuners that include “Two Gentlemen of Verona” and “Sweet Smell of Success.” Rob Ashford, whose choreography credits on Broadway include “Cry-Baby” and “Curtains,” will helm and choreograph.

Plot of “Brigadoon” centers on two Americans in Scotland who stumble across a village that appears only for one day every century. Tuner bowed on Broadway in 1947 and was made into a 1954 MGM pic.

For a few decades, “Brigadoon” was revived fairly regularly in Gotham, but it was last seen on the Rialto in 1980. Ostar Prods. and Liza Lerner, daughter of lyricist and original book writer Alan Jay Lerner, produce the latest incarnation.
