Tony Lo Bianco in "The Little Flower"
Live on Stage, His Acclaimed One-Man Show About Fiorello LaGuardia, NYC's Most Colorful & Beloved Mayor. "It was wonderful. Now I know what to do." - Mayor Michael Bloomber
Award-winning stage and screen star Tony Lo Bianco with his one-man, tour-de-force portrayal of New York's most beloved mayor! Tony Lo Bianco's The Little Flower is a poignant, inspirational and comedic one-man show set in the 1945 City Hall office of Fiorello H. LaGuardia on his last day as mayor. LaGuardia was, of course, the courageous, flamboyant mayor who read comics over the radio to children during a newspaper strike, wiped out a half-century of political corruption, and set a new standard for politicians throughout America. Tony Lo Bianco arrives as himself - then moves in and out of character like magic, flashing back and forth between today, New York in 1945, and to events both triumphant and tragic in LaGuardia's astounding career. Following the play, Mr. Lo Bianco interacts with the audience, providing insights into political challenges that seem as relevant to 2013 and the NY mayoral election as they did in LaGuardia's day.
