TORCH SONG by Harvey Fierstein

Marin Theatre, Mill Valley, CA (2024)

Harvey Fierstein’s acclaimed, newly revised two-act version of his Tony-winning Torch Song Trilogy follows Arnold Beckoff, a lovelorn Jewish drag queen looking for love in New York City. When his disapproving mother arrives from Miami, the fur really starts to fly. By turns hilarious and deeply moving, this MTC revival of a landmark play by Fierstein, an icon and staple of American musical theatre and Broadway, is an event you won’t want to miss.

"Wickedly inspired direction from Evren Odcikin"

Theatre Eddys


"A heartfelt production with humor and depth… Odcikin’s direction ensures a well-paced performance, blending comedic and dramatic moments effectively."

For All Events

"Wickedly inspired direction from Evren Odcikin… Dean Linnard as Arnold delivers a commanding, tour de force performance in a production that is perhaps timelier and more important to be seen now."

Theatre Eddys

"Torch Song contains enough juicy material to fuel a year-long Netflix serial. The production is unassailably superb."

Marin Independent Journal

"Presented with boundless energy, deft comic timing, and plenty of pathos, the heat of  Fierstein’s words continues to burn bright in the capable hands of a cast that continually rises to the challenge of bringing this zany, substantive meditation on the gay experience to life."

San Francisco Chronicle

"Director Evren Odcikin skillfully weaves together all the various elements of this complex classic. The depth and breadth of the characters shine through in this piece."

Front Row

"Director Evren Odcikin and a terrific ensemble do wonders with Fierstein’s brilliant script."
