NEW YORK (AP) — Fresh off his success with "Kinky Boots," Harvey Fierstein will be offering his first play in almost 30 years — and there's plenty of kink.

The Manhattan Theatre Club said Monday it will produce "Casa Valentina," a play about a community of cross-dressing men. It begins previews April 1 and opens April 23 on Broadway at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Producers said the show will be set in the 1960s in the Catskill Mountains and deal with an "inconspicuous bungalow colony that catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men whose favorite pastime was dressing and acting as women."

The creative team and cast will be announced later.

Fierstein is a four-time Tony Award winner behind "Newsies," ''Torch Song Trilogy" and "La Cage aux Folles."
