Description:

Harvey Fierstein might have written his memoir as the tragic story of a Jewish kid from Brooklyn rejected because he was fat and gay.

Or of an outcast who cloaked himself in drag — and used it as his catapult to stardom.

Or as a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the Theater of the Ridiculous, the evolution of Broadway and the excesses of Hollywood.

But I Was Better Last Night goes beyond the predictable because Harvey has no talent for self-pity, little penchant for self-aggrandizement and a legendary knack for turning suffering into self-deprecation.

Upon the release of this simultaneously hilarious and poignant memoir, please join us to hear his inimitable voice speak about turning addiction and despair into triumph — and to celebrate the man who proved that gay truths are universal.

Actor, playwright and author, Harvey Fierstein is the winner of four Tonys and three Drama Desk Awards. He has appeared in more than two dozen films and is the author of a children’s book.
