At 6 PM New York Times contributing writer Jesse Green will moderate the discussion celebrating Fierstein's career, the 25th anniversary of New York's LGBT Community Center and Fierstein's latest Broadway venture, A Catered Affair. Fierstein, a four-time Tony Award winner for his play Torch Song Trilogy (which also garnered him a Tony for Best Actor), the book of La Cage aux Folles, and his turn as hausfrau Edna Turnblad in Hairspray, has not only penned the book for A Catered Affair, but also co-produces and appears in the work.
TimesTalks will also feature excerpted performances from Fierstein's works, including Torch Song Trilogy, Safe Sex, La Cage and A Catered Affair, which begins previews on Broadway March 25 at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
TimesTalks is held at the TimesCenter, located at 242 West 41st Street in Manhattan. Tickets, priced $27, are available by visiting www.nytimes.whsites.net/talk.
