Description:
The 2018 Summer Arts Festival presents the play "Fiorello!" on Friday, August 10, 2018 and Saturday, August 11, 2018 starting at 7:00 pm nightly at the Squires Studio Theatre located on the second floor of the Squires Student Center on the campus of Virginia Tech.

From the legendary writers, Bock and Harnick ("Fiddler on the Roof," "She Loves Me") and George Abbott, comes the classic feel-good musical, "Fiorello!", winner of three Tony Awards including Best Musical. This triumphant show is one of only eight musicals to have won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

With crooked double-crossers and manipulators working the political puppets, "Tammany Hall" is in desperate need of an honest man to snip the strings. With guts and perseverance, Fiorello is just the man to put a bright, new shine on the Big Apple. His rise to power is a strained journey as LaGuardia does his best to retain his continuously positive outlook on life while navigating the ups and downs of his life in civil service. Set against the backdrop and beat of a a New York City in the midst of change, "Fiorello!" is a witty, sweet valentine to a little man with a big heart that will surely attract and charm audiences.

Admission is free however advance reservations are strongly encouraged because most shows sell out.
