That's right theatre fans. Four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein is returning to the Great White Way. And this time he's not in drag. In fact his new show Casa Valentina is his first new play on Broadway in almost thirty years. The show while will also be his first ever collaboration with Manhattan Theatre Club is set to begin previews at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on April 1, 2014 with opening night scheduled for April 23, 2014. Here is a description of the show from the play's official website.
Back in 1962, most men went to the Catskill Mountains to escape the summer heat, but others took the two-hour drive to escape something else entirely: being men. Nestled in the land of dirty dancing and borscht belt comedy sat an inconspicuous bungalow colony that catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men whose favorite pastime was dressing and acting as women. It was paradise for these men—white-collar professionals with families—to spend their weekends discreetly and safely inhabiting their chosen female alter egos.
But when faced with the opportunity to become an official organization, these "self-made women" had to decide whether public recognition would help them gain a place in open society or spell their own personal disaster. Infused with Fierstein's trademark wit, this moving, insightful and delightfully entertaining new work offers a glimpse into the lives of a group of unforgettable characters as they search for acceptance and happiness in their very own Garden of Eden.
