Cast and dates set for B'way's 'Finian's Rainbow'

NEW YORK – Will "Finian's Rainbow" find its pot of gold on Broadway?

A revival of the satiric musical fantasy about an Irish immigrant, his feisty daughter and a leprechaun who follows them to America will open Oct. 29 at the St. James Theatre. Previews begin Oct. 8.

The cast will include Jim Norton as Finian, Kate Baldwin as his daughter, Christopher Fitzgerald as the leprechaun, Chuck Cooper as a Southern politician and Cheyenne Jackson as the labor organizer who woos the young woman.

The revival, directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, is based on last spring's acclaimed concert production at City Center.
