Hello. I had known the song, "When I am not Near the Girl I Love," because my husband likes singing it to make fun of me. (He is 87 years old and saw the original production. He says his ex-wife used to hate it, too.) I had no idea about what Finian's Rainbow was like when he took me to see it a couple of weeks ago. He only told me that this song came from it.

I LOVEd this musical. I am not too keen on big-production Broadway musicals in general, but this one was the most enjoyable. Great cast, songs, etc... Thank you for doing this great show.
