A friend from work is in this musical. After she told me a little about it and that this production lives up to her high quality standards, I knew I had to go.
This IS a great show and definitely lived up to my expectations. I love learning a little piece of NYC history in a fun 2 hour show! It was about the Fiorello LaGuardia.
It was also set in a good period, Act I was 1915-1918 and Act II was 1929-1933. That means we heard some jazz! Both acts started off with an instrumental piece and no actors on the stage. I liked that and it set the tone.
It was a great show played very well. Everyone was really good. There were probably about 30 people in the cast. It was a lot of fun. I liked the music even though show tunes aren't my thing. It was a lot of fun!
