From Apr ’08 Spotlight:Based on the incredible success of their first production back in June ‘06 (which received ten Jeff Citation nominations and won four), Timeline Theatre Company is staging another revival of Fiorello!. With lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and music by Jerry Bock (the duo who helped to create Fiddler on the Roof), this musical version of the life of legendary New York mayor Fiorello LaGuardia won both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony award after its Broadway premiere in 1959. Harnick, who came to town last month to headline a benefit for the Timeline folks, polished up some lyrics for the new production. So even if you’ve seen Fiorello! before, you’ve never seen THIS Fiorello!
The new production opens on April 17 and runs through June 18. For tickets, call 773-281-TIME (8463) or visit www.timelinetheatre.com.
