Synopsis:

Premiering on Broadway (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Broadway_theatre) in 1947, Finian’s Rainbow is a musical with a book by E.Y. Harburg (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Yip_Harburg) and Fred Saidy (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Fred_Saidy), lyrics by Harburg, and music by Burton Lane (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Burton_Lane).

Finian moves to the USA from Ireland (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Ireland) with his daughter Sharon, to bury a stolen pot of gold near Fort Knox (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Fort_Knox), in the mistaken belief that it will grow and make him wealthy. A leprechaun follows them, desperate to recover his treasure before the loss of it turns him permanently human. Complications arise when a bigoted and corrupt U.S. Senator (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/United_States_Senate) gets involved, and when wishes are made inadvertently over the hidden crock.
