Broadway Rewind: A CATERED AFFAIR Walks Down the Aisle to Broadway VideoBroadway Rewind: A CATERED AFFAIR Walks Down the Aisle to Broadway
by BroadwayWorld TV - Apr 28, 2020

This episode of Broadway Rewind has BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge dropping by Kleinfeld Bridal to meet the cast of one of Ridge's favorite musicals, A Catered Affair, which featured a book by Harvey Fierstein and a beautiful score by John Bucchino. The musical welcomed back to Broadway Faith Prince and Harvey Fierstein, and the guests were treated to a number from the show by co-stars Leslie Kritzer and Matt Cavanaugh. Fierstein told Ridge, 'The whole experience has been joyful. You bring in these actors who have so easily taken over these roles. Between you and me, you know when you have a show that has a breakout performance, it's unbelievable. We've got three in the show. You've got Faith Prince, who is playing a role she was born to play. No one has seen her do anything like this. Tom Wopat, who has never created a role on Broadway, he has only done revivals, so you are going to see Tom do something he has never done before. Then, Leslie Kritzer, everyone thinks of her as the funny girl, who stole Legally Blonde, and she is just heartbreaking in this.'

This episode is for all the Lin-Manuel Miranda fans. Broadway World's own Richard Ridge takes us to the opening night of the Broadway run of his landmark musical In the Heights, where Lin told Ridge, why the musical touches such a diverse audience of every age. 'Tonight, I feel a real sense of accomplishment. I think the immigrant and universal things that happen are, we do the jobs that no one else wants to do. Our parents sacrifice and they do things that they don't want to do, so we can do better than they did. I think everyone responds to that and it strikes a universal chord.'
