Last night my husband Paul and I were very fortunate to see The Studio Theatre production of Torch Song Trilogy. I first saw "Widows and Children" (The third act) when I was in high school and visiting NYC at La Mama. When I was in college I filled in as a techie for a week during Torch Songs run at The American Playhouse (pre-Broadway) , and I saw it many times in its original run on Broadway. I never saw the movie because I didn't want to, movies have a way of disappointing after you know the stage version. I didn't think I could ever like any one else other than Harvey in the lead role. Watching Seth Rudetsky struggle with the play several years ago only confirmed that. I'm not sure I would have gone had we not had season subscription tickets (last year was our first year in DC and Studio Theatre became one of out favorite companies). All I can say is I am so glad I went. The production was great. I thought I knew the play like the back of my hand and yet the cast made me feel like I was seeing it for the first time. Brandon Uranowitz as Arnold made me do the impossible. From the first second he walked on the stage I forgot about anyone elses interpretation. He made the role his own and was brilliant. The rest of the cast was equally as impressive. I have to single out Alex Mills as Alan. In the year Paul and I have been in DC I have seen him in four shows (one being the lead in Shakespeares R&J. His Romeo was the best I have ever seen). He is amazing. If you are in the DC area, this is a MUST SEE.Info on tickets
