How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The show was excellent. Initially worried that a 3.5-hour play would be tiring, I was amazed that the production never dragged. I thought the actors playing the characters of Arnold, Ed and Arnold's mother were especially strong. The blues singer wasn't especially effective, nor was the actor playing David (not bad, just a little arch). I wondered if Torch Song Trilogy could withstand not having Harvey Fierstein at the helm, and this production proves that it is a strong play all on its own with the right casting.
