On Oct. 14th, 2014 a friend and I had the honor of being Tony Lo Bianco's guest for his one man performance as Fiorello LaGuardia in the play , "The Little Flower" at The Da Capo Opera House in New York City. My connection with Tony is by way of my 35 year friendship with actor- singer Ann Jillian and her husband, Andy Murcia.
