Torch Song Trilogy (10/24 @7:30pm)

by Harvey Fierstein
directed by Michael Kahn

Arnold Beckoff comes by his blues honestly; he knows what it is to long for love. Tired of trawling New York’s gay bar backrooms, and armed with fierce humor, Arnold faces commitment-shy men, a hostile world, and his formidable mother as he tries to find a family on his own terms. With biting wit and startling poignancy, Torch Song Trilogy illuminates a defiant romantic’s fight for intimacy and respect. First performed in 1981, Harvey Fierstein’s bittersweet comedy resonates with today’s questions about marriage, family, and self-acceptance in the gay community and beyond.

Event begins at 7:30PM
