Torch Song Tickets
Second Stage Theater presents the highly anticipated New York revival of Harvey Fierstein's Torch Song, starring stage favorite Michael Urie and Tony and Academy Award winner Mercedes Ruhl.
Torch Song Trilogy originally opened on Broadway at the Little Theatre (now the Hayes Theater) on June 10, 1982, where it ran for 1,222 performances until May 19, 1985. The original production starred Mr. Fierstein himself in the lead role, who went on to win the Tony Award for "Best Play" and "Best Actor in a Play." A film adaptation followed in 1988 in which Mr. Fierstein reprised his role.
