Brigadoon opens Dec 9th at Richmond Gateway Theatre until Jan 1st!
Tonight is opening night at the Richmond Gateway Theatre
for Brigadoon, that wonderful Lerner and Lowe musical that features one
of my favorite songs – Almost Like Being in Love. Gene Kelly imortalized the mystical Scottish village that only appears once every hundred years in the movie version of Brigadoon.
I will don my kilt and sporran and go join the other Asians in kilts
and tartans – as the Gateway Theatre has a colourblind casting
rule. General Manager Simon Johnston himself, is half Chinese and also playwright of Gold Mountains Guest, and Running Dog Paper Tiger.
I'm heading down for the opening night party where scotch tastings will be featured.
