Music by Burton Lane
Book by E. Y. Harburg & Fred Saidy
Lyrics by E. Y. Harburg
A musical that wrestles with timely topics and timeless struggles. In this enchanting production created by Burton Lane, E. Y. Harburg and Fred Saidy, the audience is transported to the mythical land of Missitucky where sharecroppers are embroiled in a mortgage crisis, an Irishman and his daughter are looking for the American Dream, racial injustice is rampant and a bigoted politician’s greed threatens to steal the day.
