Tuning the “Affair”

Fierstein_harveyAn enthusiastic Harvey Fierstein tells me “I’ve finished all my fine-tuning” for his  B’way-bound “Catered Affair.” The script is complete and the music has been “re-orchestrated” by Jonathan Tunik “who fell in love with it,” according to Harvey. “He has now given it more of a sring quartet feeling.” “Affair,” which bowed at San Diego’s Old Globe on Oct. 1, will go back into rehearsals with director John Doyle in February with the new version set to start previews March 25 for an April 17 bow at the Walter Kerr Theatre following “A Bronx Tale.”

Fierstein will first take a quick trip to London to see the new version of “La Cage Aux Folles,” bowing Jan. 10 at the Mernier Chocolate Factory. Fierstein recalls the “original production (in London) didn’t do well. This one is all new.” He recently wrote a tribute to Robert Goulet (whose last show was “La Cage Aux Folles”) for Entertainment Weekly.
