The plot doesn't hold up under scrutiny, but, thanks to Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's sweeping score, I couldn't care less. With the help of rich interpretation from conductor Roger Bingaman, Light Opera Works's production of the 1947 musical fantasy paints a lush aural picture of the Scottish landscape. Clay Sanderson and Robert Hunt make an amiable pair as two American travelers who stumble upon the enchanted village of Brigadoon. The whole cast is exceptional, but no one shines more than Maggie Portman--a firecracker both vocally and comedically as Sanderson's overeager love interest. --Dan Jakes
