REVIEW: A triumphant “Torch Song” back on Broadway

Following a hit run Off-Broadway last year, Harvey Fierstein’s landmark gay play “Torch Song” is back on Broadway with an abridged text and title, but its heart and humanity intact.  On second viewing, this production feels more muted and a bit too comfortable, but the performances are richer and better, and the subject matter as timely as ever.  An uproarious comedy with a suite of characters you come to love, “Torch Song” is a must-see of the fall (or any) season.

Second Stage's "Torch Song" is headed to Broadway in the fall; Gavin Creel out of "Hello, Dolly!" until May - Santino Fontana steps in March 13th; NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar" telecast announces full cast; the Parkland shooting survivors behind #NeverAgain are drama kids
