Brigadoon as tasty as the buffet
Carved pork loin, pot roast, Caesar salad, carrot cake, strawberry rhubarb pie a la mode – and all I could eat. It WAS almost like being in love, as the signature song for Brigadoon goes.
Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre has perfected the buffet line with lots of salad, fruit, and veggie offerings to offset the usual pastas, potatoes, and rice. And the two-station dessert spread!
The strawberry rhubarb pie was a slight disappointment – light on the rhubarb, heavy on the cornstarch – but all else I sampled tasted fresh and home-cooked.
As for the show – don’t miss it! I hadn’t seen Brigadoon done since my high school’s production, and I forgot how magical the story itself is.
Add to that a highly talented cast and the time flies by — just like 100 years does in the tale.
Special kudos to Jeannie Shubitz, who hit all the high notes in the Highlands as Fiona; and Victor Legarreta, as Jeff, and Morgan Springer, as Meg, for adding comic relief.
