Mamet's [em]Buffalo[/em], Lerner's [em]Brigadoon[/em] To Rumble On Broadway

It’s the battle of the Broadway revivals! David Mamet’s American Buffalo and the Lerner and Loewe musical Brigadoon will both open during 2009. Buffalo producers are courting Sexoholic and Summer of Sam star John Leguizamo, according to the New York Times. No casting is set for Brigadoon, the hit Broadway show about two Americans wandering into a Scottish village that comes alive every 100 years, according to Playbill. But the play, written by the team who brought us scores for My Fair Lady, Gigi and Camelot, will be directed by Tony winner Rob Ashford and will include a new book by another Tony winner, John Guare. We’re putting the 1954 movie version of Brigadoon, starring the “incomparable” Gene Kelly and “sensational” Cyd Charisse belting out those classics “Almost Like Being In Love,” “There But For You Go I” and “Come to Me, Bend to Me,” into our Netflix queue right now.
