Studio Theatre announced the second, and final extension of its critically acclaimed box office hit Torch Song Trilogy. The production must close Sunday, October 27th, 2013.
Brandon Uranowitz takes on the role of Arnold, which playwright Harvey Fierstein originally wrote for himself.
DCTS critic J. Robert Williams writes: “In the first moments of his performance as the iconic drag queen Arnold Beckoff, Brandon Uranowitz snatches away all disbelief and refuses to give it back. He renders an incorruptible reality for his audience, making the three-and-a-half hours of Torch Song disappear in an eruption of candor and charisma. Uranowitz captures all the complexity and humanity of Arnold. He is caustic and self-deprecating, but at the same time deeply optimistic.
In a beautiful transformation, our hero gradually replaces his hopeless dream of love and respect with the unwavering certainty that he deserves them. The performance is nothing short of magical.”
