Brigadoon and Jesus Christ Superstar This Weekend!
The costumes, the lights! There's nothing quite like live theater. Make it part of your weekend with TWO great shows; Brigadoon and Jesus Christ Superstar!
Bring a lawn chair, set out a blanket, enjoy a picnic dinner and get swept into the enchanted world of Brigadoon, a place that rises out of the Scottish mist for one day, every 100 years.
When Tommy falls for beautiful villager Fiona Campbell, he must decide whether to stay or to return to his life. Including such famous hits as “Heather on the Hill” and “Almost Like Being in Love,” Lerner and Loewe’s “Brigadoon” has music that will sweep you off your feet and a whimsical story that is a tribute to the power of true love.
Truly one of my favorite shows of all time, it's no wonder this show has been around for over 40 years. The story is tragic, the message timeless, and the music is some of the best Andrew Lloyd Webber has ever produced. If you haven't seen JC belt out "Gethsemane" live on stage, you're missing the stuff of rock opera legend. (See below)
Fearing that this tide of religious fervor will provoke brutal repression by the occupying Romans, Judas must make his fateful choice between faith and betrayal.
(Ted Neely performs "Gethsemane" in the 1973 film version)
