Abstract

In this short performance review, the author considers the recent ‘revisal’ production of Brigadoon, staged by the Goodman Theatre in Chicago in the summer of 2014. One of the charms of this production was its revised libretto, by Brian Hill, which sought to contextualize the myth of the disappearing village of Brigadoon against a backdrop of genuine Scottish historical events. The revisal also strengthened the character portrayals to appeal to the tastes of contemporary audiences. The author explores some of these changes and reflects on the success of the production.
