Ian Marshall Fisher's Lost Musicals returns to Lilian Baylis
Ian Marshall Fisher’s Lost Musicals returns to the Lilian Baylis Theatre at Sadler's Wells, with 2 rediscovered shows.
These semi staged performances are a celebration of rarely heard works by America’s "most important writers” .
Flahooley, plays Sundays on MAY 13 ,20, 27 at 4pm, JUNE 3 at 1.45pm & 5.30pm. It has music by Sammy Fain, Lyrics & Book by E.y. Harburg, Book by Fred Saidy. Flahooley is an hilarious, highly satirical, Mary Poppins-esque allegorical fairytale about a genie, a magic lamp and a doll-maker. In Flahooley, Harburg bravely registers one of the few attacks on 'McCarthyism' to be heard on the American stage while lampooning big business practice.
Aladdin, plays Sundays on Aug 19, 26 at 4.00pm & Saturday Sep 1 at 2.30pm & 5.30pm & Sunday Sep 2 at 4pm. It has music & Lyrics by Cole Porter, book S.J. Perelman. Cole Porter's very last musical score was originally written especially for television.
