BROADWAY LEGENDS: HARVEY FIERSTEIN
Behind every great man is a great woman, as the sensational Harvey Fierstein proved in the musical Hairspray. Bedazzled in colorful stripes and glitter, Harvey’s Tony®-winning Edna Turnblad becomes the eleventh ornament in our Broadway Legends series, and the first male, albeit dressed as a woman! Edna is glamorously transformed and welcomed to the ‘60’s on this 6” tall glass ornament, designed by Glen Hanson with the Christopher Radko Company. Also available are the legendary Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl and the beloved Carol Burnett in Once Upon a Mattress.
