Get To Know Harvey Fierstein's 'Bella Bella'

Four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Casa Valentina) returns to MTC tonight in his one-man show, Bella Bella.

Fierstein takes on New York City’s very own political firebrand, Bella Abzug, in his new raucous, heart-rending and absurdly humorous solo show. Set in 1976, on the eve of her bid to become New York State’s first female Senator, Bella Bella finds this larger-than-life, truth-slinging, groundbreaking, hat-wearing icon squirreled away in the bathroom of a midtown hotel awaiting that night’s election results while a coterie of family and celebs await her entrance.The production is directed by Kimberly Senior (The Niceties).

Get to know Fierstein and Senior in the video above.

Performances begin tonight October 1st at 7:00pm. For more information, visit MTC's official website.
