Torch Song Trilogy

SYNOPSIS: A gay drag performer has a tempestuous relationship with his bisexual, closeted lover. Both attempt other relationships before forming a family with an adopted son — and after the drag queen confronts his disapproving mother — in an evening composed of three one-act plays, with a blues singer singing torch songs as commentary.
