The Little Flower

James Bridges Theater

235 Charles E. Young Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90095

4:30pm

“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 stage is a theatricalized representation of the American-Georgian City Hall building in Manhattan’s City Hall Park. This show can be performed with either a full set, limited set or touring set on a limited budget.

“The Little Flower” presents a historic look into the life and career of Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia - a courageous and flamboyant personality, who read comics to the children during a newspaper strike, fought against corruption and cleaned up city politics setting a new standard for mayors and politicians in America.
