Torch Song
by Harvey Fierstein
February 14 – March 9, 2024

Direction by Gary C. Hopper
Starring Lucian Restivo as Arnold Beckoff, with Axle Burtness, Emily Berry, Zach Bernard, Liam Storm, and Debra Clinton as Mrs. Beckoff.

Torch Song follows Arnold Beckoff’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. The show explores love and relationships, families we’re born into and those we choose, and above all, the struggle to find ourselves.

Opens Friday February 16, 2024, at 8 pm, following low-priced previews on Wednesday and Thursday, February 14 & 15 at 8 pm. Performances run Thurs-Sat evenings at 8 pm through March 9 with Sunday matinees at 4 pm and select Wednesdays at 8 pm. Tickets are $40 ($20 for the previews, $10 for students, always, and discounts for groups of 10 or more).
