The Little Flower q&a preview by Tony Lo Bianco
September 18, 2012

What is your job on this show?

What type of theater do you like most to work on?
A play, comedy or drama. I like them both.

What are some of your previous theater credits? (Be specific! Name shows, etc.)
A Tony-Award Nomination and Outer Critics Circle Award for "A View from the Bridge" (Eddie); The Rose Tattoo; The Royal Hunt of the Sun; The Goodbye People; Obie Award for Yanks-3 Detroit-0 Top of the Seventh.

In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
The show is about a celebration of a great mayor who set an example of sacrifice, giving and caring for the people he represents. Audiences will take away a lot of humor, history, education, and celebration of a giving and sharing spirit.

Groucho, Chico, Harpo, or Zeppo?

Can theater bring about societal change? Why or why not?
I hope to God it can. That to me is the purpose of being a performer. I always believe that while entertaining, one should be instructing.
