Harvey Fierstein, the American writer and star of Torch Song Trilogy, has always been outspoken. For a long time in the early 1980s, he was the only openly gay actor that most people could name. He has appeared in Bullets Over Broadway, Mrs Doubtfire, and more than 70 stage productions. Now he puts his outspokenness to good use in his new live show, "This Is Not Going To Be Pretty", which premieres in Britain. Fierstein will mix musical numbers with political satire, pledging that he will be updating his material until the last minute. A Tony Award winner three times, he says that "it all depends on who pisses me off at the Stop & Shop that day. You'll never see the same show twice."
