(Re)Setting the Stage: Fiorello! Tickets Available Free Online

When: Sun 1/17, 2 PM CST

TimeLine Theatre revisits its celebrated staging of this 1959 musical (score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick and book by Jerome Weidman and George Abbott) about New York's Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, first mounted by TimeLine in 2006 and revived by the company in 2008. This free event includes "clips and memories with a discussion moderated by Carol Ann Tan and featuring director Nick Bowling, former Illinois State Senator and TimeLine Board Member Toi Hutchinson, and Fiorello LaGuardia biographer Mason B. Williams (author of City of Ambition: FDR, LaGuardia, and the making of Modern New York)." Reader critic Jack Helbig called the 2006 production "a seldom-performed gem" and noted that "the cast puts as much energy into the characters as the songs."
