Thread Name: Just where IS Glocca Morra?
Subject: RE: Just where IS Glocca Morra?
I once played Finian McLonergan, the title character. At the very end of the show, as Finian is leaving for Oak Ridge, TN, he says to the assembled folks of Rainbow Valley, "I'll see you all some day in Glocca Morra."
Woody, the romantic lead, turns to Finian's daughter Sharon, the ingenue, and says, "Sharon, where IS Glocca Morra."
She replies (mysteriously, according to the stage direction), "There's no such place, Woody. It's only in father's head."
And before Woody can ask, "Well, why were YOU singing a song about it, then?" it's final chorus, music swells and blackout -- end of the play.
