Set in the mythical southern state of Missitucky, FINIAN'S RAINBOW pits a charming Irish dreamer and his headstrong daughter against the host of complications that await them in their newly adopted land: a bigoted southern Senator, a credit crisis, a pesky leprechaun and, of course, a complicated love affair that gives birth to some of the most witty, charming and heartfelt songs ever written for the stage.

A blend of romantic fantasy and social commentary, the classic musical Finian's Rainbow follows the adventures of an Irishman and his daughter who hope to strike it rich in America, using a pot of gold stolen from a leprechaun.

The score by E.Y. Harburg and Burton Lane includes "How Are Things in Glocca Morra," "Old Devil Moon," "Look to the Rainbow" and "If This Isn't Love," among others.
