A Musical Play in Two Acts
Music by BURTON LANE
Book by E.Y. HARBURG
And FRED SAIDY
Lyrics by E.Y. HARBURG
This old-fashioned musical (featuring the clever lyrics of E.Y. Harburg set to the beautiful music of Burton Lane) premiered 69 years ago on Broadway, and its message of racial harmony, justice and social equality remains just as relevant today. “Look To The Rainbow,” “Old Devil Moon,” and “How Are Things In Glocca Morra?” are but a few of the lyrical tunes in this magical tale of Finian McLonergan, his daughter Sharon, the golden crock stolen from Og, a leprechaun, as well as a racist Senator… but all is resolved and love, wealth and happiness descend on Rainbow Valley.
