In Torch Song – the two-act revival of Harvey Fierstein’s award-winning Torch
Song Trilogy – the life of Arnold Beckoff , a torch song-singing, Jewish drag
queen living in New York City, is dramatized over the span of the late 1970s
and 1980s. Told with a likable, human voice, Arnold struggles through love,
heartbreak, and the challenges of child-rearing. But, a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.
