Success - Article sent! close

Goodman Theatre has, for a second time, extended its spirited, emotionally charged revival of "Brigadoon." A 1947 musical by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, it's about a Scottish village that appears for only one day every century, and the two American men whose lives are transformed after they stumble upon it.

Performances continue through August 17, for the production that marks the Goodman debut of acclaimed director/choreographer Rachel Rockwell, whose earned accolades for her work at Drury Lane Oak Brook ("Ragtime," "The Sound of Music," "Sweeney Todd"), Paramount Theatre in Aurora ("The Music Man," "Annie," "Hair") and Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire ("The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee") among other theaters.

Kevin Early and Jennie Sophia star in the revival which features a revised book by Brian Hill, music direction and additional arrangements from Roberta Duchak and sets by Kevin Depinet.
