Torch Song - 2019 - West End

Starting at £25

The Turbine Theatre's inaugural season opens with Torch Song, a new revival of Harvey Fierstein's dizzyingly funny and deeply touching landmark play, directed by Olivier Award-winning Drew McOnie (King Kong, Strictly Ballroom, On The Town).



The ground-breaking and Tony Award-winning story of drag queen Arnold Beckoff and his quest for true love in 1970s Manhattan is a hilarious and heart breaking portrait of love, loss, sexual identity and the deep longing for family approval that drives us all forward, and drives us all crazy.
