The story is that I went to see a performance of A Catered Afair and met Harvey Fierstein in his ultra small dressing room. He was charming and down to earth. We discussed the fact that Ethel Merman should have won for Gypsy as well back in 1960 and not the nun in Sound of Music, can"t fool with a nun Harvey said so she won instead for the Sound of Music. I told him I have been following his career since Torch Song Trilogy when Estelle Getty played his mother way before The Golden Girls. Nadines husband knows Harvey since they were 4 so he was kind enough to talk . love, Gary Smiler.
