NEW YORK, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Harvey Fierstein and John Bucchino’s musical version of the movie “A Catered Affair” is expected to open on Broadway next spring.

The show is slated to begin previews at New York City’s Walter Kerr Theatre March 25, 2008, with an official opening April 17, Playbill.com reported Monday.

The musical will first usher in the 2007-08 season at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre beginning next month.

Directed by Tony Award winner John Doyle, the show is about “relationships strained to their limits” when a couple must decide whether to spend their life savings on a family business or their only daughter's wedding.

With a book by Fierstein and music by Bucchino, the show will star Fierstein, Faith Prince, Tom Wopat, Matt Cavenaugh and Leslie Kritzer. The cast also is to include Philip Hoffman, Katie Klaus, Heather MacRae, Lori Wilner and Kristine Zbornik.

The Kerr was most recently home to the award-winning musical, “Grey Gardens.”
