Under the skilled direction of the dynamic duo Cal Robinson-Taylor and Phoebe Taylor, this performance breathes fresh life into the timeless classic. It unearths the profound struggles and triumphant moments of Arnold Beckoff, the central character, as he navigates the intricate realms of love and acceptance while yearning for a profound sense of belonging.

At its essence, Torch Song serves as a powerful exploration of the universal longing for love, the journey to self-discovery, and the significance of forming bonds that transcend conventional definitions of family. Taylor Made Productions masterfully brings these themes to the stage, delivering an unforgettable experience that will touch your heart and leave you contemplating the profound impact of love, identity, and family in our lives.

Join us for a truly unforgettable evening that promises to be both moving and thought-provoking.
