Eight-year-old Wendi Motte, of Burbank, is gaining a resume credit, while Broadway veteran S. Marc Jordan, of Glendale, is singing a score he’s long appreciated in the 1947 classic “Finian’s Rainbow” at the Alex Theatre on Feb. 23. The story is about Finian, who has left his beloved Ireland for the town of Rainbow Valley with his daughter Sharon. He is hoping to bury a stolen pot of gold with the hopes it will grow and multiply. Wendi plays two parts in the musical, Honey Lou, who is a sharecropper’s child, and a messenger.
