BWW TV Exclusive: Meet the 2014 Tony Nominees- CASA VALENTINA's Harvey Fierstein Reveals Where He Keeps His Six Tonys!
It's Tonys season! The 2014 Tony Awards will broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City, on CBS, on Sunday, June 8th 8:00 - 11:00 p.m. The ceremony is still weeks away, and in the meantime, BroadwayWorld wants you to get to know this year's nominees. Richard Ridge was thrilled to speak with nearly all of them at the official Tonys Meet & Greet on April 30, 2014, and we will be bringing you special coverage on all of them leading up to the big night.
Today we continue our Tonys coverage with Harvey Fierstein, a nominee for Best Play for Casa Valentina, who chats about how he originally got involved in the New York theatre scene, the joy of working with Joe Mantello, and more. Check out what he had to say below!
Inspired by a trove of photographs found at a street fair (which were published by powerHouse in the book, Casa Susanna) and supplemented by Fierstein's own research, Casa Valentina takes audiences to a frontier rarely broached in theater or in life, thanks to a man of the theater who continues to celebrate people in all of their diversity.
