Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of Casa Valentina, the play by four-time Tony Award winnerHarvey Fierstein, directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello just opened last night, April 23, 2014 at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). Check out photos from the star-studded theatre arrivals below!

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 they got the opportunity to share their secret lives with the world, these "self-made women" had to decide whether the freedom they would gain by emerging from hiding was worth the risk of personal ruin.
