The story of New York's little man with the big heart, Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia.

From the legendary writers Bock and Harnick (Fiddler On The Roof, She Loves Me) and George Abbott, comes the classic feel-good musical Fiorello!. Winner of 3 Tony Awards including Best Musical, this triumphant show is one of only 8 musicals to have won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

With crooked double-crossers and manipulators working the political puppets, “Tammany Hall” is in desperate need of an honest man to snip the strings. With guts and perseverance, Fiorello is just the man to put a bright, new shine on the Big Apple. His rise to power is a strained journey as LaGuardia does his best to retain his continuously positive outlook on life while navigating the ups & downs of his life in civil service.

Set against the backdrop and beat of a a New York City in the midst of change, Fiorello! is a witty, sweet valentine to a little man with a big heart that will surely attract and charm audiences.
