Harvey Fierstein is a theater icon who could easily be sitting back counting the royalties from the current hit revival of his musical La Cage aux Folles, which earned him one of his four Tony Awards. Instead, he's deep in rehearsals to replace Tony winner Douglas Hodge as Albin, the drag star of the well-loved musical on February 15. For theater fans, the casting is heaven, as Fierstein previously turned in career-high turns in heels in Torch Song Trilogy and Hairspray. On this week's Show People, host Paul Wontorek asked Fierstein about his drag past (hello, Freaky Pussy!) and present. Click on for the uncensored chat with one of Broadway's most unforgettable talents. Executive Producer: Paul Wontorek Directed by Tim Kepler Shot by Tim Kepler & Nick Shakra
