Synopsis

Amazon.com
Lerner and Loewe's classic Brigadoon shines in this 1991 studio recording led by celebrated conductor John McGlinn three years after his stunning reconstruction of Show Boat. Broadway stars Brent Barrett (Chicago) and Rebecca Luker (revivals of The Music Man and The Sound of Music) star in this fairy tale about the Scottish village that appears for one day each century. Favorite songs include "I'll Go Home with Bonnie Jean," the gently lilting "Heather on the Hill," "Come to Me, Bend to Me," the standard "Almost Like Being in Love," the comic "Love of My Life," and the yearning "There But for You Go I," and the 79-minute running time allows for plenty of dance music and underscored dialogue. The booklet includes an essay on the show, an interview with the original director, a detailed synopsis, and lyrics, dialogue, and even stage directions from the original 1947 production. Brigadoon doesn't get much better than this. --David Horiuchi

Luker sings like Astaire dances,
William Schroeder | New York, New York | 02/26/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Are you kidding me? Luker singing "Didn't you know, Tommy...." I'd buy the album just for those few bars. I saw Luker sing in Phantom back in '89, didn't know a thing about her, then went to see The Secret Garden, and recognized the voice. I'm telling you, chills up the spine. Sure, she's good looking, but good looking "singers" are a dime a dozen. I saw her at the 92nd St Y with Sheldon Harnick and they went through a piece by Gershwin (I think it was) a few times, and I almost fell out of my chair listening to this woman sing. She can't sing everything (the Allen Room was pretty weak, but I fault the material), and she can't play sexy, but who cares? It's a voice that comes along once in a few decades. Buy the CD, and play it until it wears out. Astaire could dance, Luker can sing."
