News   Latessa, Falco and Ashmanskas Join Fierstein for TimesTalk April 1
Theatre veterans Dick Latessa, Edie Falco and Brooks Ashmanskas will join Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein for the New York Times' April 1 TimesTalk.

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, penned the book for A Catered Affair, but also co-produces and appears in the new musical.

As previously announced, Fierstein will be joined by his Catered Affair collaborator John Bucchino and the production's leading lady, Tony Award winner Faith Prince for the 6 PM discussion.

Newly added to the line-up will be Catered Affair's groom, Matt Cavenaugh, who will perform a scene from La Cage aux Folles with Fierstein's Hairspray co-star Dick Latessa. Emmy winner Edie Falco and Tony nominee Brooks Ashmanskas will read scenes from Fierstein's works including Safe Sex and Torch Song Trilogy.

The TimesTalk is held at the TimesCenter, located at 242 West 41st Street in Manhattan. Tickets, priced $27, are available by visiting
