Finian's RainbowFinian's Rainbow - 2009 Broadway Revival Cast

The classic American musical Finian's Rainbow returned to Broadway on October 29, 2009, to rave reviews. The New York Times predicted "permanent sunshine" for this "thoroughly winning and joyous" production; Variety hailed it as an "infectious charmer, with one of Broadway’s consistently melodious scores"; while the critic for The Wall Street Journal stated simply, "I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more musically satisfying show."

Featuring some of the wittiest, most heartfelt and memorable songs ever written for the stage (including How Are Things in Glocca Morra?, Old Devil Moon, and Look to the Rainbow), Burton Lane and Yip Harburg’s score – rendered here by a cast of 30 and a full orchestra - remains one of Broadway’s finest.

The acclaimed cast includes Broadway stars Jim Norton, Cheyenne Jackson and Christopher Fitzgerald, plus the wonderful Kate Baldwin in her first Broadway lead role.
