The new solo show, written by and starring Harvey Fierstein, opened October 22.

Hats off for opening night of Bella Bella, the new solo show about Bella Abzurg written by and starring Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. Directed by Kimberly Senior, the play opened October 22 Off-Broadway.

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).
