A Catered Affair Original Broadway Cast Recording
A CATERED AFFAIR, the new musical with book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein, score by John Bucchino and direction by Tony Award-winner John Doyle, poses the question that inevitably faces every mother and daughter: whose wedding is it anyway? It's 1953, and family ties are strained when a Bronx mother struggles to give her only daughter the elaborate wedding she herself never had – and the bride never asked for. Based on the 1956 motion picture of the same name, the production stars Tony Award-winner Faith Prince as Aggie Hurley, the mother of the bride, Tony Award-nominee Tom Wopat as Tom Hurley, the father of the bride, and Fierstein himself as Winston, the uncle of the bride. It's a funny, poignant and oh-so-human tale of love and disaffection, expertly preserved on this original Broadway cast recording.
