You're Invited! Torch Song Performance

We hope you that you and a guest will join NYU Tisch School of the Arts Alumni Relations to experience Torch Song, the Tony Award®-winning comedy featuring Drama Desk Award Winner MICHAEL URIE (Younger, Ugly Betty, Buyer & Cellar) and Academy Award® and Tony winner MERCEDES RUEHL (The Fisher King, Lost in Yonkers), directed by Tony nominee and Tisch Alumnus MOISÉS KAUFMAN '17 (BFA, Drama), (The Laramie Project, I Am My Own Wife).

Hilarious and heart-wrenching, Torch Song follows Arnold Beckoff's odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child, and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect. Join Arnold on this all too human journey about the families we're born into, the families we choose, and the battles to bring them all home.
