The planned Broadway revival of Lerner and Loewe's Brigadoon, to be directed and choreographed by Rob Ashford, has been postponed. A statement to the press cites that the delay is due to the lack of an appropriate Broadway theater in Spring, 2009. The postponement has also resulted in the cancellation of the musical's pre-Broadway engagement, announced for Boston for October 21-November 16 at the Colonial Theatre. A revised schedule for the production will be announced at a later date.

This new version of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's 1947 musical was to feature a revised book by Tony winner John Guare, with an announced creative team that included Christopher Oram (sets and costumes), Paule Constable (lighting), and Brian Ronan (sound).

The show is the story of two disillusioned Americans on vacation in Scotland who wander into a village that comes alive every 100 years but for only one day. The score includes "Almost Like Being in Love," "There But for You Go I," "Come to Me, Bend to Me," and "Heather on the Hill."
