Block, and directed and choreographed by Tony winner Christopher Wheeldon.
See it if you enjoy classic musicals. The lovely songs are well presented w/ Lekites and O'Hara as standouts. Barebones set ok; orchestra on stage.
Don't see it if you like a full-blown prod'n. Emphasis on dancing (I got bored). The lyrics are silly, but the tunes glorious. Lekites: I will come to you.
See it if Classic story, great singing. Some great songs. Great production for Encores.
Don't see it if Not very exciting. A bit too much dancing (albeit top notch). Some bizarre character actions feel very dated.
See it if You want to see a polished production and enjoy listening to great voices and seeing beautiful dancing.
Don't see it if You are looking for a fast paced show that has a strong story. I didn't really buy into the love story and wasn't attached to any characters
See it if You miss the days of elaborate production numbers & simple love stories, love great dancing, want to see a rarely revived classic, gorgeous
Don't see it if Old fashioned musicals, esp. with a lot of ballet-style dancing are not your thing nor musicals with death or overly-romantic plots
See it if You want beautiful music sung by wonderful singers. You want outstanding choreography performed by amazing dancers.
Don't see it if You prefer contemporary musicals.
See it if cast excellent, Kelli's heavenly singing/performance will be long-remembered; meltingly beautiful songs; dynamic new choreography
Don't see it if second act slight, ending implausible; still per NY Times, production elevates this rarely-performed musical into first ranks
See it if You love old, classic musicals with mellifluous music, where the lead characters fall in love with each other in a single day.
Don't see it if You think most musicals written before the 1970s are dated, cliched, and boring.
See it if you wish to see a well casted, well staged and very entertaining production of Brigadoon. I highly recommend this show.
Don't see it if you do not like the show Brigadoon no matter how great the production or you don't like musicals.
See it if like Lerner/Loewe, PatrickWilson, Kelli Ohara, StephanieBlock, huge dancing chorus, gray palette in your traditional American musicals
Don't see it if holes in storytelling, restoring 7million measures dance music, flaccid scenework, all clans wearing the same tartans would bother you
See it if If you go to hear Kelli, you also get great singing by Stephanie Block & Ross Lekites. Fairchild's athletic dancing leads a fine ensemble.
Don't see it if you don't appreciate Golden Age musicals. Much of the book is silly, but I didn't mind. Like Heather on the Hill, Almost Like Being in Love
See it if you like old musicals, GREAT singing, terrific choreography, marvelous dancing.
Don't see it if you want a musical that really has something to say.This is fluff, but it is so brilliantly done, that it can be forgiven!
See it if Loved it! It was glorious. Beautifully done. Fantastic cast. A full orchestra. So perfect and beautifully done. Moved me to tears.
Don't see it if There were only 6 performances, and it has closed. If you weren’t there, I’m sorry, but you missed something very special.
See it if It is brilliantly staged. Glorious Kelli O’Hara. Robbie Fairchild &Chris Wheeldon direct/ fabulous choreography. Fresh staging and movement.
Don't see it if You can’t stand this creaky musical. A tough sell for me. Ugly costumes.
See it if you have the opportunity, Kelli Ohara is as enchanting as ever; such a treat to hear Wilson; Block sounds great & provides needed humor
Don't see it if you dislike extended dance scenes - they are lovely but fill much of the time; you want a modern or fully staged performance
See it if to hear Kelli O'Hara sing "Almost Like Being in Love' (actually, to hear her sing anything), incredible singing and a wonderful orchestra
Don't see it if plot is important, especially if you would be tempted to analyze the issues with this tale; if you are not at all a romantic
See it if You want to be swept away by enchantment in this staged version of the classic play. Singing & dancing are flawless, achingly beautiful
Don't see it if I've always loved this play, but the plot is simple, a bit strange & hokey - it's all about the songs, dancing & the magical, lyrical mood.
See it if sadly, this was just a weekend. Absolutely great production! I'm hoping it will get moved to a broadway house.
Don't see it if It has closed, but if it were still open, Run, don't walk!
