Two-time Tony Award-winner Matthew Broderick and actor Jonathan Cake will host the Irish Repertory Theatre's previously reported benefit concert performance of the classic Alan J. Lerner and Frederick Loewe musical Brigadoon at Broadway's Shubert Theatre, to be held on Monday, June 14, at 7pm. Charlotte Moore will direct, with choreography by Barry McNabb.

The cast will include Len Cariou (Mr. Lundie), Jason Danieley (Tommy), Christine Ebersole (Meg), Melissa Errico (Fiona), Ciaran Sheehan (Harry), A.J. Shively (Charlie), Don Stephenson(Jeff), and a chorus of 50 singers with a 20-piece orchestra, conducted by Mark Hartman.

The musical tells the story of a mysterious Scottish village that appears through the mist for one day every hundred years. It follows two cynical and jaded New Yorkers who stumble across the "Bridge O'Doon," entering the village on the very day of its once-a-century appearance. The score includes songs such as "Almost Like Being in Love," "Waitin' For My Dearie," "Come To Me, Bend To Me," and the title tune.

Single tickets are $100-$500, and can be ordered by calling 212-727-2737 or visiting the company's website at www.irishrep.org.
