Performances begin October 1 Off-Broadway for Manhattan Theatre Club's world-premiere production of Bella Bella, a new solo show written by and starring Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. In the monologue play, Fierstein embodies Bella Abzug on the eve of her bid to become New York State's first female Senator.
Set in 1976, Bella Bella finds Abzug—a larger-than-life, truth-slinging, groundbreaking, hat-wearing icon—in the bathroom of a midtown hotel while friends and family await her entrance (and the election results).
Bella Bella is directed by Kimberly Senior (The Niceties) and plays a limited engagement at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I. Opening night is October 22.
