Theater Gone Wrong: Harvey Fierstein Went Two Rounds With a Door in Under Five Minutes

You decide who won.

Harvey Fierstein has had his fair share of success onstage. He's reliving some of that success right now as he revives his Tony-winning play Torch Song (which also earned him a 1983 Tony Award for Best Actor) at Second Stage Theatre. Accolades, however, can't fend off stage disasters, especially when temperamental doors are involved — a surprisingly consistent hazard for great artists of the stage.
