“Brigadoon” has a special place in Rody Gilkeson’s heart.
As a child, the 1954 movie adaption of the musical was often playing on television in his house.
“My mother used to love to watch movie musicals,” he says. “When it was on TV, she would sing along with the songs.”
Gilkeson says his mother was a big fan of actor Van Johnson, who played the best friend of Gene Kelly’s Tommy Albright in “Brigadoon,” so the lilting Scottish fantasy was one of her favorites.
