About this show

The story centers around an Irish immigrant and his daughter who travel to a mythical town in the Old South searching for a piece of the American Dream. When a magical leprechaun follows them to reclaim a stolen pot of gold, the town is turned upside down by what happens next. Considered quite controversial when it first premiered in the 1940s, Finian's Rainbow bravely tackles issues of racial prejudice in an emotionally touching plot that mingles fantasy and reality.
