A Catered Affair to play at the Walter Kerr Theatre
A Catered Affair, the new musical with book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein, score by John Bucchino and directed by Tony Award-winner John Doyle, is to open at the Walter Kerr Theatre on 17 Apr 2007, following previews from 25 Mar 2007.
The cast for A Catered Affair will feature the previously announced Faith Prince, Tom Wopat, Harvey Fierstein, Leslie Kritzer, Philip Hoffman, Katie Klaus, Heather MacRae, Lori Wilner and Kristine Zbornik.
The design team is comprised of David Gallo (sets), Ann Hould-Ward (costumes), Brian MacDevitt (lighting) and Dan Moses Schreier (sound).
Based on the 1956 Turner Entertainment motion picture written by Gore Vidal, and the original teleplay by Paddy Chayefsky, A Catered Affair reveals relationships strained to their limits when a couple must decide whether to spend their life savings on a family business or to launch their only daughter's marriage with a lavish catered affair.
Prior to opening on Broadway, A Catered Affair will inaugurate the 2007-8 season at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre, where performances begin on 20 Sep 2007.
A Catered Affair will be produced on Broadway by Jujamcyn Theaters, Harvey Entertainment/Ron Fierstein and Richie Jackson.
