“You can’t judge a book by it’s cover!” Cecil tells Officer Doughberg as he tries to explain why he and his partner, Pug, were caught in a funeral home in the middle of the night. He figures to confuse the policeman with fast talk and mumbo jumbo. Actually, they were there to heist a few trinkets, which is what Doughberg figured all along. What nobody figured on was Beulah Meadows, the owner of the place, showing up and recognizing Cecil as her long-lost son, Jimmy Meadows, who vanished from an amusement park some 25 years earlier. This of course, comes as a tragic shock to Beulah’s daughters, who ere just about to sell the funeral home for quite a bundle. “We’ll have to get rid of him,” intones Gretchen, the oldest daughter, “one way or another.” Before you know it, the place is over run with other-worldly sister, whining lawyers, policemen, psychiatrists, and nuns! Is Cecil really there to help out his would-be mother? Or is he sticking around because he has a crush on Joan, the mortician? And is Cecil really Beulah’s long-lost son? Find out in this fantastic farce when two con men set out to lift a few pieces of silverware and end up Stealing Home.

Book by Jerome Weidman and George Abbott
Music by Jerry Bock
Lyrics by: Sheldon Harnick
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 3 Tony Awards including Best Musical, this triumphant show is one of only 8 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 & 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.
