The new musical A Catered Affair, will begin its Broadway run on March 25 at the Walter Kerr Theatre, with an official opening set for April 17. The Kerr was most recently home to Grey Gardens.

The show, which will play San Diego's Old Globe Theatre, September 20-October 28, will be directed by Tony Award winner John Doyle. The creative team will feature David Gallo (sets), Ann Hould-Ward (costumes), Brian MacDevitt (lighting), Dan Moses Schreier (sound), and Zachary Borovay (projections).

As previously announced, the show stars Faith Prince, Tom Wopat, Harvey Fierstein, Leslie Kritzer, Matt Cavenaugh, Philip Hoffman, Katie Klaus, Heather MacRae, Lori Wilner, and Kristine Zbornik.

The musical, which has a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein and a score by John Bucchino, follows a working-class couple in the 1950s who must decide whether to spend their life savings on a family business or to launch their only daughter's marriage with a lavish wedding. The show is based on an original teleplay by Paddy Chayefsky and its film adaptation by Gore Vidal.
