Torch Song

Torch Song Tickets

The Turbine Theatre’s inaugural season opens with Torch Song, a new revival of Harvey Fierstein’s dizzyingly funny and deeply touching landmark play, directed by Olivier Award-winning Drew McOnie (King Kong, Strictly Ballroom, On The Town).

The ground-breaking and Tony Award-winning story of drag queen Arnold Beckoff and his quest for true love in 1970s Manhattan is a hilarious and heartbreaking portrait of love, loss, sexual identity and the deep longing for family approval that drives us all forward, and drives us all crazy.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

Matthew Needham: People dismiss Torch Song as a light comedy, but there's a lot more under the surface

There's a constant merry-go-round of news of new theatres opening in and around London, with venues popping up here, there and everywhere. The newest, the Turbine Theatre over in Battersea - an area untouched by most theatres, throws its doors open this week with what on paper should be a bang.  Like the first production at Paul Taylor-Mills last venture, musical playground The Other Palace, Drew McOnie directs the opening show. Then, it was a production of Andrew Lippa's musical The Wild Party, but this time he's chosen Harvey Fierstein's Torch Song.
