#MWBVault: Relive Finian’s Rainbow with the Original Cast Recording From 1960
A revival of the 1947 musical by Burton Lane and E.Y. Harburg, the 1960 production of Finian’s Rainbow was the second of three revivals of that show presented by the New York City Center Light Opera Company (the other two were in 1955 and in 1967). It first opened at the City Center on April 27, 1960 for a limited run of fifteen performances, and moved to the 46th Street Theater on May 23, 1960, for an additional twelve performances, with a cast that included direction of Herbet Ross, Howard Morris, and Robert Guillaume, under the direction of Herbert Ross. Its cast album recording, the first in the nascent stereo sound, has been a constant seller in the catalogue.
