Character: Jeff Douglas

What do you like about "Brigadoon"? It's an interesting show. It's very magical and whimsical. 

Tell me about your character. I'm the drunk. It's different from what I normally play. It's fun to try something new. I'm the friend of Tommy. We're lost in Scotland and we find Brigadoon. I don't like Brigadoon. 

What's your favorite song in the musical? There's really great music. I really like "I'll Go Home With Bonnie Jean" and "Down On MacConnachy Square." They're very fun and very lively.

Why should people see this production? I think people should come see this performance because it's a great show. It's magical and there's comedy.
