Members of the Wedding
Screen-to-stage adaptations are all the musical rage this season, and the latest is A Catered Affair, now in previews at the Walter Kerr Theater in advance of an April 17 opening. Book writer Harvey Fierstein and composer-lyricist John Bucchino, along with director John Doyle, have reworked the 1956 Bette Davis film (based on a Paddy Chayefsky teleplay) about a working-class couple torn apart over whether to spend their savings on a new taxi or their daughter's big wedding into a 90-minute musical. At a recent meet-the-press event at the world-famous New york bridal store, Kleinfeld's, TheaterMania spoke with Fierstein -- who also plays "bachelor uncle" Winston in the show -- and stars Faith Prince, Tom Wopat, Leslie Kritzer, and Matt Cavenaugh about their involvement in this very special project.
