Regarded as one of the most underappreciated musicals of all time, Fiorello! is the classic tale of New York’s “Little Flower,” Fiorello H. LaQuardia. The book is by George Abbott and Jerome Weidman and the gorgeous score is by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick. The show follows LaGuardia from his early career as a Greenwich Village lawyer and Congressman to his eventual rise as Mayor of New York City. With songs like “Til Tomorrow,” “Gentleman Jimmy” and “Politics and Poker,” Fiorello’s career is brought to life with both rousing and tender musical numbers.
Fiorello! will be presented Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. May 14, 15, 21, 22, 28 and 29. Sunday matinees will be performed at 2 p.m. on May 16, 23 and 30.
