David Bedella, Sara Kestelman Set for Torch Song Trilogy at Menier Chocolate Factory
Bedella won an Olivier Award for his performance in Jerry Springer: The Opera. Among his other stage credits are Road Show at the Menier, along with Chicago, The Rocky Horror Show, and the Royal Albert Hall concert production of Chess.
Kestelman won an Olivier Award for her work in Sam Mendes' revival of Cabaret, and was seen in the West End production of The Girl With the Pearl Earring. After Torch Song, she is scheduled to appear in Making Noise Quietly at the Donmar Warehouse.
The show, a trio of one act plays, centers on the life of drag performer Arnold as he enjoys the highs and lows of romance, weathers tragedy, and eventually creates a family for himself. Additional casting will be announced in the near future.
