Torch Song Trilogy is constructed of three moving plays told over three acts:  International Stud,  Fugue in a

Nursery, and  Widows and Children First! The life of Arnold Beckoff, a torch song-singing, Jewish drag queen

living in New York City is dramatized over the span of the late 1970s and 1980s, through Stonewall, the AIDS

crisis, and other ground-breaking milestones for the LGBT community. Told with a likable, human voice,

Arnold struggles through love, disease, and the challenges of child-rearing. In the tradition of  The Normal

Heart and  The Pride, and one of the pre-cursors for the seminal  Angels in America, this award-winning and

popular work broke new ground in the theatre: "At the height of the post-Stonewall clone era, Harvey

challenged both gay and straight audiences to champion an effeminate gay man's longings for love and

family."
