Easthampton Theater Company is proud to announce its upcoming production of the iconic and heartwarming play Torch Song by Harvey Fierstein. Set to captivate audiences at the Blue Room of the Old Town Hall in Easthampton, Massachusetts, this timeless exploration of love, identity, and acceptance will run from January 26 to February 4, 2024.
ABOUT THE PRODUCTION: Torch Song follows the journey of Arnold Beckoff, a New York City drag queen, as he navigates the challenges of love and self-discovery. All he wants is a husband, a child, and a pair of bunny slippers, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect. Harvey Fierstein’s Tony Award-winning play is celebrated for its humor, poignancy, and unflinching portrayal of the LGBTQ+ experience.
