This revival of the 1947 musical comedy satire is an expanded version of the March City Center Encores! concert staging.

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.
