Ian Marshall Fisher's Lost Musicals to Present Flahooley and Aladdin logo
Sadler's Wells will present Flahooley and Aladdin as part of Ian Marshall Fisher's Lost Musicals series. Flahooley will play May 13-June 3, and Aladdin will play August 19-September 2.

With music Sammy Fain, lyrics and book by E.Y. Harburg, and a book Fred Saidy, Flahooley is a funny allegorical fairy tale with genies, magic lamps, and a doll maker. The 1951 show registered one of the few attacks on McCarthyism to be heard on the American stage.

Written for a television broadcast in 1957, Aladdin boasts music and lyrics Cole Porter and a book S.J. Perelman. Porter's last work, the show has not been seen since the original broadcast.

Ian Marshall Fisher's Lost Musical's produces semi-staged performances of rarely heard works by American writers.
