Fiorello!
"Dont miss your chance to see what all the fuss is about!  The New York Times

Terrific. Timely synced with contemporary culture. Powered by a notably youthful cast, this production has a sunny-spirited exuberance. Its not hard to see why Fiorello! remains cherished today. Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

What is a progressive politic?  Look no further than Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning Fiorello!.  A big-hearted look at Mayor La Guardia and his battle for the people of New York City. With music and lyrics by Tony Award-winners Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler On The Roof, She Loves Me) and book by Tony Award and Drama Desk-Winner George Abbott (The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees) and Jerome Weidman (Tenderloin), this production is directed by Playwrights Horizons founder, Bob Moss (BTG: A Class Act).

Tammany Hall is in dire need of an honest leader, and Fiorello La Guardia is just the man for the job. Battling against the corrupt, political puppets of New York City, Fiorello vows to clean up the Big Apple. A man of the people, Fiorello must use his wit and charm to fight for the right of the citizens. Based on the real-life rise to power of Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, Fiorello! is one of only nine musicals to have been awarded the esteemed Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Bob Moss says, "Mayor La Guardia was long gone by the time I moved to New York, so I never lived under his tenure in City Hall.  But the Little Flower, as he was called, lives on in memory. The music is toe-tappingly delightful, the characters are richly drawn and a story about good guys is desperately needed in today's jaded and vitriolic politics. It's great to be reminded, as the music lifts us aloft, that good can triumph over selfishness."
