Is Finian's Rainbow an acceptable to produce today?

I want to produce Finian's Rainbow with my theater company, but I have heard that it is too racy by today's standards. I want opinions on if that's true and why.
Do you know the musical Finian's Rainbow?
Yes
No (then skedaddle!)
Is the show too "edgy" for a modern audience?
Yes
No
Some people say the music is too long, boring and doesn't advance the plot. Do you think, musically, that this is a poor show to produce?
Yes, the songs are long and pointless and make this a bad choice of a show to produce
No, the songs are wonderful and the show is a relic of how musicals were written in the time period it was first produced
Is the subject matter presented in the show too dated for a modern audience to connect to?
Yes
No
Will you leave comments/opinions on why this show could or couldn't work today?
Yes
No
