The Little Flower, a five-time Emmy Award winning one-man Broadway show, will transport 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 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 family values, inflation, women’s suffrage, financial responsibility, education, unions, political corruption, and prohibition, La Guardia was a father figure to millions of Americans living through the hard times of the 1930s and 1940s — fighting corruption, cleaning up city politics, and setting a new standard for politicians throughout America.

This story relives the important events and lessons of La Guardia’s life as it moves colorfully through the first half of the 20th century in America, and provides a clear vision of a man who not only lived through those times, but helped shape them with a legacy that will live on forever.

"A mesmerizing and beyond brilliant performance."
Jules Peimer, 'Broadway After Dark'
