  John Bucchino and Harvey Fierstein

We're not sure when the wedding is but Leslie Kritzer will play the bride-to-be in A Catered Affair, set to hit Broadway in the Spring of 2008. The musical has a book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein, a score by John Bucchino and will be directed by Tony Award-winner John Doyle. Prior to its Broadway debut , the show will be at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre, beginning September 20. Kritzer joins the already announced Faith Prince and Mr. Fierstein in the cast.

Ms. Kritzer is this season's recipient of the Clarence Derwent Award for her performance in Legally Blonde-The Musical. The award honors "the most promising female and male performers on the New York metropolitan scene." It's presented by the Actors' Equity Foundation. Leslie Kritzer made her Broadway debut in Hairspray; Off Broadway, she received a Drama Desk nomination for her performance in The Great American Trailer Park Musical; her cabaret show, Leslie Kritzer is Patti LuPone at Les Mouches, has been widely acclaimed.

In the upcoming musical, Ms Kritzer will play 'Jane Hurley,' the aforementioned bride-to-be. Ms. Prince will play her mother 'Aggie' and Mr. Fierstein will play her uncle 'Winston.' The setting is the Bronx, circa, 1953. And the plot revolves around whether a couple spend their life savings on a family busines, or give their only daughter a lavish catered affair for her wedding. Now, that's a crisis of conscience.
