Commentaires : Torch Song Trilogy originally opened on Broadway at the Little Theatre (now the Hayes Theater) on June 10, 1982, where it ran for 1,222 performances until May 19, 1985. The original production starred Mr. Fierstein himself in the lead role, who went on to win the Tony Award for "Best Play" and "Best Actor in a Play." A film adaptation followed in 1988 in which Mr. Fierstein reprised his role.
Presse : "This latest incarnation of “Torch Song,” directed by Moisés Kaufman, finds an irresistibly compelling gravity beneath the glibness. Best known for staging lyrical but earnest topical dramas, Mr. Kaufman turns out to be just the man for eliciting the sting within the soap bubbles of “Torch Song.”" Ben Brantley for New York Times

"It’s been almost 35 years since Harvey Fierstein’s “Torch Song Trilogy” won a best play Tony Award. Now, in its Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage, this pioneering but patchy comedy-drama of gay life and love — as seen through the mascara-caked eyes of Jewish drag (and drama) queen Arnold Beckoff — still draws laughs and tears." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"For gay history to stay alive, torches must be passed. So it is with Second Stage Theatre’s welcome and well-assembled revival of Harvey Fierstein’s plangently funny and touching play." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"While Urie's strained vocals grow wearing, turning his occasional throwaway lines into welcome bursts of oxygen, the actor's resourceful physical-comedy skills provide more consistent pleasure. But only in the play's superior final act, when he's matched with a comparably outsize scene partner in Mercedes Ruehl as Arnold's archetypal Jewish mother — swooping in from Florida in an orchid-pink traveling suit, a lacquered bouffant and a Miami Beach cancer tan — does he dig into the pathos, anger and desperate longing of this complicated character." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"In “Torch Song,” an affectionate if ill-considered revival of Harvey Fierstein's “Torch Song Trilogy,” Michael Urie makes a brave but bizarre effort to channel the playwright’s own groundbreaking star performance as a lovelorn drag queen in Manhattan’s 1970s gay society." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
