Named one of the best shows of 2016 by the Wall Street Journal, the much be-loved musical returns to the Irish Rep stage, twelve years after it was first revived to great acclaim. Tony-nominee Melissa Errico reprises her celebrated performance as "Sharon." The groundbreaking 1947 musical follows an Irishman who steals a feisty leprechaun's pot of gold and escapes with his daughter, Sharon, to Missitucky, a mythical region, part of the Jim Crow South. The daughter and the sprite each find romance with others, but also encounter bigotry, economic disparity and cultural injustice.
