THEATER | 'Torch Song Trilogy' 

In Harvey Fierstein's dramatic "Torch Song Trilogy," protagonist Arnold Beckoff gives a glimpse into his life as a gay, Jewish, torch song-singing drag queen living in New York City during the 1970's and 80's. The play (really three plays told over three acts) takes you through different phases of Beckoff's life, spanning several years, as he struggles with love, acceptance, and child-rearing, and witnesses the Stonewall riots and the beginning of the AIDS crisis. Black Sheep Theatre will present a staged reading of Fierstein's works this weekend, with actor Billy DeMetsenaere as Arnold. Directed by Kristy Angevine-Funderburk.

Readings of "Torch Song Trilogy" will take place Saturday, July 15, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, July 16, at 2 p.m., at Black Sheep Theatre (274 North Goodman Street, Studio D-313). Tickets are $10 in advance; $12 at the door. For reservations, call 861-4816, or email tickets@blacksheeptheatre.org.
