A Scene from Brigadoon

Carol Webster sends this in. I often make sure I go home via Wardsville from the 401, just to see the scene portrayed when I drive down towards the bridge.  The bridge with the village nestled behind is straight out of Brigadoon~~~~~~~~~
Brigadoon, written by the duo of Alan Jay Lerner (book and lyrics) and Frederick Loewe (music), was very popular in its time. Directed by the legendary Bobby Lewis, the show opened at the Ziegfeld Theatre on 13 March, 1947, and ran for 581 performances. It continues to enjoy frequent revivals to this day. Brigadoon was also made into a movie of the same name, starring the immortal Gene Kelly. You can still catch it occasionally on late night television. You might also hear some of its songs on the radio now and then. Among them, the best-known is, “Almost Like Being In Love“.
