“I have completely outlived every fantasy I ever had about what my life could be. I’ve also crashed and burned more times than most would think survivable.” — Harvey Fierstein
Saturday, June 3rd — ArtsRock presents Harvey Fierstein in Conversation with Elliott Forrest. Mr. Fierstein, a four-time Tony Award-winning actor, playwright and screenwriter — star of Hairspray, Mrs. Doubtfire and Independence Day, and author of Torch Song Trilogy, La Cage Aux Folles, Kinky Boots, Casa Valentina and Newsies — shares stories from his life, career, and new memoir, I Was Better Last Night.
This heartwarming conversation will be guided by Peabody Award-winning WQXR broadcaster and producer, Elliott Forrest. “I’m so excited to bring Harvey to Nyack. I look forward to once again spending time with him on stage. He’s been such an icon for Broadway and living your truth,” says Forrest.
