Finian's Rainbow - 2016 - Off-Broadway

$50-$70

The groundbreaking 1947 musical FINIAN'S RAINBOW follows an Irishman who steals a feisty leprechaun's pot of gold and escapes with his daughter, Sharon, to Missitucky, a mythical region in the United States that is part of the Jim Crow South. The daughter and the sprite each find romance with others, but also encounter bigotry, economic disparity and cultural injustice.

FINIAN'S RAINBOW is directed by Charlotte Moore (Da) and choreographed by Barry McNabb (Transport, Finian's Rainbow). FINIAN'S RAINBOW features scenic design by James Morgan (Cagney), costume design by David Toser (Natural Affection), and lighting design by Mary Jo Dondlinger (New Girl in Town at Irish Rep). John Bell (Fiddler on the Roof) will serve as music supervisor, with Stephen Gabis (Heisenberg) as dialect coach.
