The Harlem Repertory Theatre presents the political musical, FINIAN'S RAINBOW, July 20, 21, 26 & 28, August 11, 12, 18, 25 & 26, and September 1 & 6. The incomparable Yip Harburg, who created the dazzling score for the classic MGM film version of THE WIZARD OF OZ, also composed the score for FINIAN'S RAINBOW.
Set against Harburg's gospel, blues and Broadway songs, the plot of FINIAN'S RAINBOW uncompromisingly explores contemporary themes of race and class. The more serious, politically inspired plot devices are juxtaposed against situations that are filled with fantasy and charm that will surely appeal to audiences of all ages. The eclectic cast of characters include: a racist white senator who is turned black so he can experience the pain he has inflicted on others, a mischievous, misguided leprechaun named Og, a woman who speaks through dances, a pair of lovers, Woody and Sharon, and Finian, the hopeless dreamer, who is responsible for setting this fantastical, entertaining and magnificent tale in motion.
