The reviews are out!

Here are some highlights:

From Chicago Tribune theater critic Chris Jones (who wanted a wee dram to add to the authenticity. Alas for the remnants of dry Evanston): "...this entire 1947 musical is treated with a great deal of respect by director Rudy Hogenmiller — whose production goes further than most .... in offering an impressively substantial choreographic experience." (full review)

"The plaid kilts are in full swirl, the tamoshanters twirling, the “rs” rolling, and the heather in full bloom in Rudy Hogenmiller’s ravishing revival of Lerner and Loewe’s early and evergreen hit." Chicago Theatre Beat (full review)

"The Light Opera Works production is wonderfully directed and choreographed..." nwi.com (full review).

"Under the direction of Roger L. Bingaman (conductor) and Rudy Hogenmiller (choreographer and stage director), this cast sings and dances with vibrant festivity. ChicagoNow.com (full review).

"Those who have only the truncated Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse film treatment from MGM as a reference or who may never have encountered Brigadoon at all are in for the biggest treat. Fans of the musical likewise will rejoice in the exceptionally high caliber of production it has been given by Light Opera Works." Chicago Stage Style (full review).
