Anonymous said: Mr. Hippity, BRIGADOON! Now I have it stuck in my head too. I once went to see a high-school production of Brigadoon complete with a LIVE ANIMALS, not just one or two, we're talking like an entire flock of sheep at one point. It was the longest and most boring yet majestic thing I have ever seen in my entire life.
We didn’t have sheep, but we had a dry ice machine to create “mist.” This impressed the audience greatly, as I recall. Many oohs and ahs.
By the way, this show contains a few reminders that Alan Jay Lerner was not always a genius. Here are some actual lyrics from the original production (which don’t appear in the movie version):
Lads say a prayer, I’m afraid Harry Beaton is dead!
Looks like he fell on a rock and it crushed in his head.
