Harvey Fierstein


All good things come in threes.
A heart felt revival of Harvey Fierstein’s classic play with music.

Funny and poignant, Harvey Fierstein’s intensely personal collection of three plays chronicles a Jewish New York drag-queen’s quest for love, respect and a life of which he can be proud.

From a failed affair with a reluctant lover, to a burgeoning relationship with a young fashion model, Arnold Beckoff’s greatest torment in life remains his turbulent relationship with his mother.



In celebration of Darlinghurst Theatre Company’s 25th Anniversary, we continue our longstanding tradition of telling LGBTQI stories with the reprisal of director Stephen Colyer’s 2013 critically acclaimed Torch Song Trilogy. 

“Director Stephen Colyer has created a wickedly funny and energetic trilogy” – Sydney Arts Guide

Simon Corfield is gorgeous in the show….Torch Song Trilogy was a landmark in gay theatre and this revival is simply excellent.” - SX Magazine.

★★★★ "Director Stephen Colyer and his superb cast have created a production that’s packed full of life...when the performances are this fine, it’s impossible not to be transported to Arnold’s world and experience the heartbreak, joy and defiant richness of his life."  Time Out Sydney

★★★★ "A wonderful, funny, poignant, moving and thought-provoking production...Director Stephen Colyer has shaped – with his cast – a crackling, warm and humorous trilogy full of sizzling life and witty repartee." - ArtsHub

★★★★ "Finger clicks to Sydney’s newest jazz club, the Eternity Playhouse, which is gently swaying to some very smooth sounds... Go for the songs. Stay for every wonderful moment in between." Daily Review 

"This is a stunning production where writing, direction, design and acting come exquisitely together." - Stage Whispers

"Songs are magnificently presented by Hilary Cole and Tim Draxl, accompanied by Phil Scott’s exquisite piano playing. Both singers use music to their magical advantage and leave remarkable impressions."Suzy Goes See

"All performances are strong, with Corfield outstanding as gravel voiced Arnold, but Kate Raison makes a show stealing last act entry as Ma Beckoff...You must see this production" Alt Media
