Encores! Stars Honor Hizzoner in Fiorello!

New York City Center Encores! opens its 2013 season Jan. 30-Feb. 3 with Fiorello!, the same musical that kicked off its inaugural season back in 1994. The Pulitzer Prize-winning 1959 show charts the rise of New York City Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia as he went from immigrant's son to feisty Congressman battling the political machine. Cast members Danny Rutigliano, Shuler Hensley and Emily Skinner, and lyricist Sheldon Harnick, talked to Playbill about the legendary mayor, the show's music and the experience of working on an Encores! concert production. Read Encores! artistic director Jack Viertel's essay about the musical Concert-Revival, and the Playbill interview with Harnick.
