Fierstein told the L.A. Times that he does not intend to star in the play, which is aiming for a March 2014 Broadway arrival. Previous reports indicated that the Torch Song Trilogy and Hairspray Tony winner would star.
The play is characterized as a nine-actor ensemble piece. An April report in New York Magazine indicated that Fierstein's latest stage project was titled Casa Valentina and would focus on straight male transvestites. A late 2012 reading of that play featured Tony Award-winning actor John Cullum.
A representative for Fierstein could not comment on the project.
