Torch Song Trilogy

Rated 3.0

Shawn B O'Neal is perfect in the role Harvey Fierstein wrote for himself in three plays and assembled into one massive production that tells the story of a gay, Jewish drag queen in New York in the late 1970s and '80s. It's his play all the way, with Jon Jackson, Anthony Raddigan and James Hayakawa giving strong support. The play is long—too long. Nevertheless, the play remains an admirable, groundbreaking piece of theater. F, Sa 8pm. Through 11/21. Resurrection Theatre, 1723 25th Street. J.C.
