Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein

When my show Torch Song Trilogy opened on Broadway, it was during the summer and it was very hard to find an audience, opening in July. TKTS kept our show open for 11 months until we finally came around to the Tonys, won our Tonys, and then people bought tickets on their own. But without the booth, we never would have made it that first I owe TKTS a lot!
