It's 1979 in New York City, and Arnold Beckoff is on a quest for love, purpose, and family. He's fierce in drag and fearless in crisis, and he won't stop until he achieves the life he desires as a doting husband and a Jewish mother. Now Arnold is back...and he's here to sing you a torch song. This Tony Award-winning play that forever changed the trajectory of Broadway returns for a new generation.

Torch Song Trilogy opened on Broadway in 1982, where it enjoyed a groundbreaking run, earning Tony Awards for best play and best actor (Harvey Fierstein). The play has since been produced extensively across the country and around the world, including productions in London's West End and Menier Chocolate Factory. It was also turned into a 1988 film starring Fierstein, Matthew Broderick, and Anne Bancroft.
