Listen to this intimate CiaoDC Chat with actor, writer and producer, Tony LoBianco about being mayor, Fiorello La Guardia in his one-man show, Little Flower; his amazing foundation work, Heroes to Heroes; and what beingItalian really means to him.
Tony LoBianco brings ''America's'' mayor, Fiorello La Guardia, to life in the one man show Little Flower. The show will be performed on May 12 at 6 pm at the War Memorial of Baltimore in honor of the Italian Cultural Center of Maryland. Tony brings us behind the scenes of his life as an actor, producer, philanthropist, and Italian-Amerian.
The Little Flower is an educational, inspirational and at times comedic one-man show set in the office of Fiorello H. La Guardia, during his last day as three-term Mayor of New York City in 1945. The Little Flowerpresents a historic look into the life and career of Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia - a courageous and flamboyant personality, who fought against corruption and cleaned up city politics setting a new standard for mayors and politicians in America. He was a great statesman and champion of the poor and under privileged, and a father figure to millions of Americans living through the hard times of the 1930’s and 1940’s. The show is set in “present time-1945” and “flashbacks.” Chronologically, it re-enacts important events in La Guardia’s life and the lessons he learned.
