About this show

A solo play set in the office of Fiorello H. La Guardia on his final day as a three-term Mayor of New York City in 1945, The Little Flower presents a historic look into the life and career of the great statesman. A champion of the poor and underprivileged, La Guardia's voice resonated throughout America, and he became a father figure to millions that lived through the hard times of the 1930s and 40s. He transcended political party barriers, running as a Fusion Party Mayor, and held strong convictions on family values, inflation, women's suffrage, financial responsibility, education, unions, political corruption and prohibition. A courageous and flamboyant personality who cleaned up city politics and also made the time to read the comics on the radio to children during a newspaper strike, La Guardia set a new standard for American politics.
