2010-11 Season

A Catered Affair

book by Harvey Fierstein

music and lyrics by John Bucchino

Based on the 1956 movie starring Bette Davis and Ernest Borgnine, this brand new Tony-nominated musical was chosen as Best Musical by the New York Drama League for 2008. A Catered Affair tells the story of two parents in the Bronx trying to give their daughter the elaborate wedding they never had. In this funny, poignant, and oh, so human show of love and disaffection, Fierstein's book and Bucchino's score expose both our need for love and the true meaning of family. Starring area favorites Joe Aiello, Barbara Marineau as the bride's parents, and Scott Burkell as Uncle Winston (Fierstein's role), you're invited to RSVP for this charming and heartfelt new musical this spring!
