Finian's Rainbow is a Broadway musical revival I've been personally been looking forward to for several years. Honestly, I have heard talk about it being revived but it never seemed to happen until very recently. So now its my pleasure to tell you a little something I have heard about Finian's Rainbow.
Finian's Rainbow will begin preview performances at the St. James Theater on 44th Street in New York City on October 8, 2009. With a cast of 35 talented actors and actresses, this old fashioned musical with a great musical score is sure to please young and old alike. It's a real quality family show, something Broadway could use much more of in my opinion.
Set in the "deep South", Finian's Rainbow tells the story of an "Irish dreamer" named Finian (played by Jim Norton) and his daughter Sharon (played by Kate Baldwin) who move there all the way from Ireland. Not only is Finian's daughter a difficult person but they settle in a town where they face the prejudice of the local politicians, an economic crisis and an obnoxious leprechaun. Still Finian's Rainbow is also a love story that gives way to some of the best classical songs ever to be written for a Broadway musical.
Jim Norton plays Finian, who was recently seen in The Seafarer and won a Tony Award for his performance in 2008. His daughter Sharon (Kate Baldwin plays the role) falls for Woody (played by Cheyenne Jackson, formerly of Xanadu), and Christopher Fitzgerald plays "Og", the leprechaun. Mr. Fitzgerald recently played in Young Frankenstein on Broadway recently.
