Over the rainbow; Finian’s Rainbow

By Shana Kongmun
Finian’s Rainbow was originally a long running Broadway musical production that first went on stage in 1947 and was then filmed in 1968. My father loved Finian’s Rainbow; the story of an Irishman who has moved to the Southern United States to bury the pot of gold that he stole from a leprechaun in Ireland, he believes that by burying it near Ft. Knox it will grow and multiply. Og, the leprechaun, follows him to the United States to retrieve his gold before the loss of it turns him human permanently.

The Tony award winning play features such classic songs as “How are things in Glocca Morra” (my dad’s favorite), Old Devil Moon and “If this isn’t love”. The play covered such issues as bigotry, poverty and corruption and while some of the sentiments in the play may appear dated, the themes ring true even today.
