Earl Minfield: Mario Cantone reviving Torch Song Trilogy

Comedian and actor Cantone is known for his appearances on Comedy Central as well as the HBO series "Sex and the City." The Tony nominee has also been seen in a handful of Broadway productions, ranging from plays to musicals to his one-man show Laugh Whore. Harvey Fierstein's Tony Award-winning Torch Song Trilogy centers on Arnold Beckoff, a gay drag performer who has a tempestuous relationship with his bisexual, closeted lover. Cantone would be an ideal choice for a Broadway revival.
