Bella Bella $13

Harvey Fierstein from Bella Abzug

Published by Dramatists Play Service

On one historical night in September 1976, Bella Abzug hides out in the bathroom of Manhattan’s Summit Hotel as she awaits the results of her bid to become New York’s first ever woman senator

Known for her fearless career as a lawyer, protester, and champion of gay rights, one of New York’s fiercest feminists must collect herself as her friends, family, and constituents - including the likes of Gloria Steinem, Shirley MacLaine and others - hold their breaths just outside the door

The clock is ticking and the world is ready

Just as soon as Bella is ...

A Solo show based on the Words and Works of Bella Abzug


“Fierstein’s incarnation feels as passionately determined as its subject … Fierstein captures [Bella’s] political savvy, her fierceness, political nous, and sense of fun, wit, and mischief” ~ The Daily Beast

“… a lively and deeply affectionate portrait of the hat-wearing, barrier-breaking 1970s liberal firebrand” ~ Time Out NY

“… Fierstein [is] an eternally captivating storyteller who sprinkles the fond salute with Yiddishisms, zingers and amusing aphorisms … The solo show also serves quite transparently as a timely reminder of the wisdom of putting women in government” ~ Hollywood Reporter
