Broadway Talks with Jordan Roth | Harvey Fierstein'S TORCH SONG | Harvey Fierstein, Michael Urie AND Mercedes Ruehl IN CONVERSATION WITH Jordan Roth

Mon, Dec 3, 7:30 pm; tickets from $35

Harvey Fierstein made theater history in 1982 when he starred on Broadway as Arnold Beckoff, searching for self-acceptance in his breakthrough play, Torch Song Trilogy, and winning Tony Awards for both writing and acting. Now, after an acclaimed Off Broadway run at Second Stage Theatre, Torch Song is back on Broadway with the gifted Michael Urie taking on the role of Arnold, and Tony winner Mercedes Ruehl playing his difficult mother. Join Fierstein, Urie and Ruehl as they talk with Jordan Roth, president of Jujamcyn Theaters, about what it means to bring this historic piece of American theater back to the stage today.
