From beat cop, to Police Commissioner to Mayor of Philadelphia, this anticipated production explores the life of Frank Rizzo as he prepares for his 1991 mayoral campaign. As we jump through time and place Rizzo’s Shakespearian complexity and unfiltered opinion brings to light what made this “larger than life” man both revered and reviled by so many.
