ABOUT THE PLAY

DRAMA

Torch Song is the two-act revival of Harvey Fierstein’s award-winning Torch Song Trilogy (Winner 1983 Tony Award for Best Play and 1983 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding New Play).

Torch Song follows the life of Arnold Beckoff, a Jewish torch song singing drag queen living in New York City. The story takes place over the span of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Told with a likeable, human voice, Torch Song follows Arnold’s odyssey to find happiness in New York.

All he wants is a husband, a child and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.

Torch Song speaks to themes of courage, resilience and perseverance and will have the audience laughing one minute and cheering on the next.
