The plot of the musical con cerns Finian McLonergan of Glocca Morra, Ireland, who knows why all Americans are millionaires. (Everyone in the world thinks so; everyone except Americans, that is). By a process of mathematics, logic and moonbeams, he devises the McLonergan theory which re veals the answer: The magical soil of Fort Knox that gives gold phenomenal qualities hitherto unsuspected by even the gold it self. In order to come to America, Finian "borrows" a pot of gold that provides the power to make wishes for the mortals of Ireland from gnomes, elves and lepre chauns. Finian arrives in Rainbow Val ley with his daughter, Sharon, and plants a pot of gold. The leprechaun comes in pursuit, ut tering dire warnings of misery and destruction. Wishes are made on the pot of gold, and history veers crazily from its path. The news gets out that gold has been discovered on McLon ergan's property and credit, cal ico gowns and tractors pour into the valley. Sharon is about to get the rain bow her father has always prom ised her a boy for her heart and pennies for her purse when the leprechaun's predictions materi alize. The play, based on a book by E.
