Five-time Emmy Award-winning Broadway show The Little Flower transports you back to the 1945 City Hall office of Fiorello H. La Guardia on his last day as three-term mayor of New York City. Written, directed by and starring Obie Award-winning actor Tony Lo Bianco, this mesmerizing one-man performance -- equal parts educational, inspirational and comedic -- presents a fascinating look at the life and career of Mayor La Guardia, who was not only a courageous and flamboyant personality, but also a great statesman and champion of the poor and underprivileged. Known for his strong convictions on everything from inflation to women's suffrage to prohibition, La Guardia was a father figure to millions of Americans living through the hard times of the 1930s and 1940s. He staked his reputation on fighting corruption, cleaning up city politics and setting a new standard for politicians throughout America. Now coming to Philadelphia's Prince Theater, The Little Flower relives the important events and lessons of La Guardia's life, providing a clear vision of a man who not only lived through those times, but helped shape them.
