Flahooley

Happy Holidays, here’s a Flahooley! Don’t know what that is? Don’t fret, just tune in for a show full of magic, puppets, love, and capitalism! What could be more Christmasy than that? Written by the team that brought you Finnian’s Rainbow, this 1951 show stars Yma Sumac singing in her signature exotica style as well as a young Barbara Cook among the talented cast!


Featured Recording: Flahooley Original Broadway Cast Recording – Capitol Records - 1951
