Trio set for ‘Rainbow’

Encores! staging set for March

Jim Norton, Cheyenne Jackson and Kate Baldwin will topline the Encores! staging of “Finian’s Rainbow” in March.

Norton (“The Seafarer”) will play the title character in the tuner, about an Irishman and his daughter (Baldwin) who are chased by a leprechaun to a small town in the American South. Ensuing complications involve a racist senator and a landowner (Jackson) who falls for the daughter.

The 1949 tuner has music by Burton Lane, lyrics by E.Y. Harburg and book by Harburg and Fred Saidy. Warren Carlyle will helm and choreograph the semi-staged concert reading.

“Finian’s Rainbow” runs March 26-29 at City Center.
