Fiorello! - 1994 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

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.
