Fiorello!

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.

The heyday of Vaudeville may have come to an abrupt end in the 1930s, but it is alive and well in Gypsy, Bay Area Musical's fifth season opening act. And what a doozy of a show. Based on the 1957 memoirs of famed striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee, the musical came to Broadway in 1959 and was promptly hailed as a runaway hit. With a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim it garnered 8 Tony nominations, though strangely enough, it didn't win any, losing Best Musical to a tie between Fiorello! and The Sound of Music. Ouch!

When it comes to Tony Award snubbing, there are several artistic high crimes and misdemeanors. For instance, Fiorello! winning Best Musical over Gypsy, or the good Music Man besting the better West Side Story. Or how about this awful upset: Two Gentlemen of Verona (the since-forgotten musical) beating both Grease and Follies for the top honor. Perhaps worst of all is this: Even though A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM was Stephen Sondheim's first and most successful Broadway show as a composer and lyricist, and even though it would win six of its eight nominated Tony Awards in 1962-1963 (including Best Musical), Mr. Sondheim himself was not even nominated for his lyrics and score. A show that features some of the most beloved comic songs from the early 1960's--'Comedy Tonight,' 'Lovely,' and 'Everybody Ought to Have a Maid'--wasn't even nominated for these iconic numbers. (For the record, Oliver! won that year for Best Score.) Broadway's greatest composer would have to wait almost a decade to receive his first Tony Award.
