Lyrics: Alan Jay Lerner

Book: Alan Jay Lerner

Brigadoon was the first big hit for the magical team of Lerner and Loewe. Inspired by Germelshausen, a german story by Friedrich Gerstäcker, Brigadoon revolves around two American tourists, Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas, who stumble upon a misty little Scottish town. Tommy soon falls in love with a local lass, Fiona MacLaren, but as the two men quickly discover, this mysterious little town only reawakens for one day every hundred years.

Brigadoon opened at the Ziegfeld Theatre on March 13, 1947 and ran for 581 performances. It established Lerner and Loewe as the successors of Rodgers and Hammerstein. The 1954 screen version featured Gene Kelly , Cyd Charisse, and Van Johnson.
