In “No Room For Humbugs At The Rainbow Room” (Huffington Post, Sept 28, 2016) Nancy Cohen compares Hillary Clinton to a feisty Dorothy and Donald Trump to the Wizard as she notes the thematic similarities between Dorothy’s signature song “Over the Rainbow” (lyric by Yip Harburg, music by Harold Arlen) and John Lennon’s “Imagine.”
The Yip Harburg Foundation’s Rainbow Troupe presented a concert of songs with lyrics by Yip at Theater for the New City’s Annual Hallowe’en Costume Ball on Oct. 31, 2015. Ben Harburg, Holly Rae Phillips, Eric Poindexter and Reanna Armellino performed, with David Gaines as Musical Director and Deena R. Harburg as Conceiver and Producer.
