After 60 Years, This Musical Is Getting a Revival


Harlem Repertory Theatre presents Jamaica as part of its Yip Harburg series

Most theatre artists can point to the show that served as their gateway drug. For Broadway performer turned Harlem Repertory Theatre artistic director Keith Lee Grant, it was Finian’s Rainbow. “You know that first thing you do in high school? I never forgot it,” he says about appearing in the musical. “I’m African-American and from the South Side of Chicago. When I was 13, the theatre group did Finian’s Rainbow with an all-black cast! That was the beginning of my love for Yip Harburg.”
