About "Finian's Rainbow Jr."
Music by Burton Lane. Lyrics by Yip Harburg. Book by Fred Saidy and Yip Harburg. Adaptation by Deena R. Harburg.
“Finian McLonergan, who has emigrated from Ireland to the town of Rainbow Valley in the mythical state of Missitucky with his daughter Sharon, intent on burying a stolen pot of gold in the shadows of Fort Knox, in the belief it will grow and multiply. Hot on their heels is Og, a leprechaun intent on recovering his treasure, before the loss of it turns him permanently human. Complicating matters are a corrupt senator but in the end, Sharon marries the handsome, young Woody Mahoney; and Woody's mute sister, Susan, acquires the power of speech and falls in love with Og, who decides that being human is not so bad after all.”
