BOX 17-20 Scripts, 1964-2009
This series primarily contains typed scripts for musical theater productions, some of which are annotated. Productions include those for which Burton Lane composed the music, as well as events in celebration of his music or scripts for his review. There are multiple versions of scripts for Finian's Rainbow and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, some of which are for posthumous productions that were provided to his widow Lynn. Differences between these versions are noted when that information is available.
Arranged alphabetically.
