Why See Bella Bella?
It's what's under the hat that counts!
Prepare yourself for the Off-Broadway return of the gravel-voiced luminary of stage and screen, Mr. Harvey Fierstein, as he brings the story of New York icon Bella Abzug to the Manhattan Theatre Club this fall. A world premiere, the brand new play both written by and starring Fierstein and directed by Kimberly Senior will take us back to 1976 where the be-hatted political and feminist firebrand nervously awaits the results of her bid for the US Senate - a role, if she's chosen, she'll be the first woman to fill.
Known for her larger-than-life character and unflinching dedication to women's rights, equality and social activism, Abzug was one of the city's most recognizable faces during the '70s and '80s. Included as one of Time magazine's 2017 list of 50 Women Who Made Political History, her legacy is still keenly felt today, alongside her taste for elaborate hats. Four-time Tony winner Fierstein promises that Bella Bella will be a: "raucous, heart-rending and absurdly humorous solo show."

Kiss Me Kate
A new, first-class Broadway version that at times raises its sparkle quotient to incandescence.

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.
