Broadway legend and multiple Tony Award Winner..HARVEY FIERSTEIN In conversation, on-stage, with Mike Isaacson, Executive Producer, The Muny
Come meet the Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, Obie, and Dramatist Guild Award winner, inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame in 2008.

Fierstein, with his unmistakable, gravelly voice, first appeared  off-Broadway in the 1970's. He set the theater world on fire with his originally underground hit "Torch Song Trilogy" in 1982, subsequently becoming more famous by the roles he played on Broadway in "Hairspray" and the record-breaking revival of "Fiddler on the Roof."  The first person in history to win Tony awards as both an actor and a writer, on both the dramatic and musical sides of the theater world, Fierstein is the talented playwright behind more than 10 Broadway hits including: "Newsies," "Kinky Boots" and "La Cage aux Folles."
A comedian, singer, songwriter, activist and author, Fierstein has written for, and starred on, television throughout the years, earning an Emmy nomination for his work on "Cheers," and numerous fans from his guest spots on: "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother," "The Simpsons"  and "The Good Wife."  He has entertained young and old on the big screen, voicing Yao in the "Mulan" films; running from aliens in "Independence Day;" and helping Robin Williams get in touch with his feminine side in "Mrs. Doubtfire." As a social and political commentator, Fierstein's opinion pieces and essays have been featured on the series "In the Life," and on the Op-Ed pages of the New York Times and Huffington Post, among other publications.  The HBO film version of Fierstein's children's book The Sissy Duckling  won him the Humanitas Prize. The book, now in its 5th printing, will be available for purchase in the Festival Bookstore. Attendees will have the opportunity to get their books signed by Fierstein following his presentation.
Don't miss a single entertaining minute as Broadway comes to the Opening Night of the
