About this show

Torch Song Trilogy is a collection of three plays rendered in three acts: The International Stud, Fugue in a Nursery, and Widows and Children First! The story centers on Arnold Beckoff, a torch song-singing Jewish drag queen living in New York City in the late '70s and '80s. Torch Song Trilogy debuted in January 1982. The play won Harvey Fierstein two Tony Awards, for Best Play and Best Actor in a Play; two Drama Desk Awards, for Outstanding New Play and Outstanding Actor in a Play; and the Theatre World Award. This is the first revival in Manhattan since its close in 1985 on Broadway, where it ran for 1,222 performances.
