Lyrics: Alan Jay Lerner

Book: Alan Jay Lerner

Two Americans game-hunting in Scotland happen upon a mysterious village in which the people dress and speak as if from another era. One of the Americans is drawn to one of the Scottish lasses and must choose between the magical Brigadoon and his conventional fiancée back in New York.
