Jay O'Callahan had the lead as a character called Old RomJay O'Callahan had the lead as a character called Old Rom in the Boston Revels and in the Houston Revels. This was a Revels celebrating the traditions, music and stories of the Romani, the gypsies.

 

 

"The star is charismatic storyteller Jay O'Callahan, and star he is indeed. Portraying a mysterious gypsy named Old Rom, his charisma alone knit the production together as it pranced from Indian folk dance to Romanian carol, Flamenco dance to English round. His tales were funny and wise, his explanations of Rom culture and history tantalizing. His deep, whispery voice seemed always to be sharing secrets and his face, full of wonder, told everything the words could not. His body had the nimble articulation of a natural clown."
