Former New York Times Critic Brooks Atkinson called Sardi’s
The center of Broadway's upper class.” The 25th Anniversary of
Irish America Magazine
party hosted by Co-Founder/ Editor-in- Chief Patricia Harty, Founding Publisher Niall O’ Dowd and Turlough
Mc Connell, Director of Special Projects, kept his words alive.

 

Sean Ricketts', grandson of Vincent Sardi Jr., knew to have a waiting tray of wine, at the top of the stairs, as guests entered filled with the glow of Finian’s Rainbow.  "Ahhh"... sounded with each grasp of a glass.  “Wonderful! Wonderful!” spread like stereo for the great revival of the Burton Lane / Yip Harberg musical.

 

Tables held copies of the latest Irish America issue; with tributes on Edward Kennedy, Frank Mc Court, poet John Coffey, William Kennedy getting the Eugene O’Neill lifetime achievement award; remembrance of Merce Cunningham and a  recipe for Limerick ham.  What respect for the written word.  One touches each page with reverence for anything Irish in this class- act magazine!

 

1200 portraits line the walls of the four floors of Sardi’s. In front of those on the second floor were legendary actor Milo O’Shea, his gifted wife Kitty,  Mr. and Mrs.Malachy Mc Court, Ellen Mc Court, widow of Angela's Ashes author Frank Mc Court, Charlotte Moore and Ciaran O’Reilly, founders of the Irish Repertory; Pulitzer Prize author William Kennedy, publisher Glen Young, PR icon Bob Ullman, Mary Pat Kelly, Peter Quinn etc. 

 

The cast of Finian’s Rainbow arrived led by Tony Award recipient Jim Norton (Finian). Applause for players began: Kate Baldwin (Sharon), Christopher Fitzgerald (Og), Cheyenne Jackson (Woody), etc.

 

Music, song, an Irish jig with fiddler strings, accompanied rhythmic claps by guests. Patricia Harty acknowledged  sponsors including John Farrell, Vice President of Strategic Planning for Coca-Cola in Atlanta, Georgia (who spoke holding a bottle of Coca-Cola). The Irish end of the rainbow was Sardi’s.

 

What a magical New York moment on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Ninth Street. A garden had a rock painted:“Look! Look! Look to the rainbow. Follow the fellow that follows a dream.“  New Yorkers hurried by webbed in chaos. They’d quickly stop and go back.  Silence followed. Then music, for they’d  begin singing  those words from Finian’s Rainbow.. I photographed the rock for Burton Lane. “See what  an artist can do.”

 

Now, with the glorious revival of Finian’s Rainbow at the St. James Theatre…. Listen!!!
