strongFIORELLO!/strong tells the story of the rise to power of New
York?s ?Little Flower,? Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia (1882-1947). In a time
when the crooked political machine known as ?Tammany Hall? was up to
its ears in graft, vice and corruption, it took this small, honest man
to break their stranglehold on New York City politics. With guts and
perseverance the "Little Flower" put a bright, new shine on the "Big
Apple."brbrWhile most political musicals are satires, strongFIORELLO!/strong is a love story set to the music and beat of a New York City in the midst of change. strongFIORELLO!/strong
is a witty sweet valentine to all that is right about the way our
government works. The little man with the big heart continues to attract
and charm audiences with his warmth and humor.
