An Affair to Remember

A Catered Affair, the new Broadway musical starring multiple Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein -- who also wrote the book based on the classic Bette Davis movie The Catered Affair -- began previews tonight at the Walter Kerr Theatre in preparation for an April 17 opening.

The new tuner, which also stars Tony winning Doll Faith Prince, former Duke of Hazard Tom Wopat and ex-Urban Cowboy Matt Cavenaugh, is directed by Tony winning Company man John Doyle.

UPDATE: Michael Portantiere interviews Harvey Fierstein at AfterElton.com, wherein he recounts how he changed the Barry Fitzgerald uncle character from a drunk in the movie to gay onstage.
