Reviews

Daniel M. Gold
New York Times

...this nimble joint production with the Harlem Repertory Theater demonstrates how to entertain on a shoestring."

"Directed and choreographed by Keith Lee Grant, the show has been trimmed to a 90-minute burst of energy and imagination."

"this "Flahooley” does its creator proud."


Paulanne Simmons
Curtain Up

"Fans of this little known but excellent show will be happy to know that it has once again been brought to stage, this time in a collaboration of Theater for the New City and The Harlem Repertory Theatre. It's been newly adapted by the Harlem Rep's Artistic Director Keith Lee Grant, who also directs and choreographs."


David A. Rosenberg
Backstage Magazine

"This new adaptation by Keith Lee Grant (from Art Pearlman's edited script) compresses two acts into one 90-minute, intermissionless, good-natured evening and features delightful puppets designed by Daniel Fergus Tamulonis as well as colorful video by Edward Corcino."

"Primy Rivera, who has a blast as both the worried sheik and the genial genie. The three-piece combo, under the musical direction of Michael Roth, adds substantial support."


Michael Kuchwara
The Associated Press

"Serious musical-theatre archeologists can’t afford to miss it."

"When Greer Samuels, as the irrepressible leprechaun, Og, dances into the flirting ,'When I'm Not near the Girl I love...FINIAN'S RAINBOW is alive and well and as enchanting as ever."

"And here in the handsome Aaron Davis Hall at the City College of New York you will find that FINIAN'S RAINBOW will enthrall [you]."
