The Studio Players kicks off their Season 9 on September 10th with a SW Florida Premier revival of the 1983 Broadway winning play Torch Song Trilogy in Torch Song by Harvey Fierstein. In Torch Song – the two-act revival of Harvey Fierstein’s award-winning Torch Song Trilogy – the life of Arnold Beckoff, a torch song-singing, Jewish drag queen living in New York City, is dramatized over the span of the late 1970s and 1980s. Told with a likable, human voice, Torch Song follows Arnold’s odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child, and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect. Torch Song directed by founder and producing artistic director Scott Lilly will play for 11 performances from September 10 – September 26th on select dates.
