Westport’s Tony-winning actress Kelli O’Hara will appear in a concert staging of “Brigadoon” at New York City’s City Center, the theater announced today.
The production of the 1947 Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Lowe musical will run from Nov. 15 to 19, beginning with a Nov. 15 gala performance in honor of the theater producer Stacey Mindich.
Christopher Wheeldon, who won a Tony for choreographing “An American in Paris,” which he also directed, will direct and choreograph the concert staging. Steven Pasquale and Robert Fairchild will co-star with O’Hara.
“Brigadoon” centers on a pair of Americans in Scotland who discover a mystical village that appears for only one day every century.
O’Hara, a Broadway superstar who won the 2015 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her role as Anna in “The King and I,” lives in Westport with husband Greg Naughton, a producer, actor, singer, and songwriter, and their children.
