I first discovered Harvey Fierstein on Politically Incorrect
. He struck me as the funniest person ever on the show (making up a little for how dull Russ Meyer proved to be).
I've never read the play so I don't know how much the text may have lost from abrigement. Don't have much to say about the film which I enjoyed mostly for Firestein's one-liners. It was a surprise to seem him younger, slimmer and clean-shaven.
After the movie has had time to fade I think I'll read the play.
