Michael Urie to Tour with 'Torch Song' After Broadway Closing!

Michael Urie will be starring in the national tour of the play Harvey Fierstein’s Torch Song!

The 38-year-old actor is currently starring in the show on Broadway and it was just announced that the play will close on January 6, seven weeks earlier than originally scheduled.

The tour will launch in Fall 2019 at the Los Angeles’ Center Theatre Group at the Ahmanson Theatre. Michael previously appeared in the play Buyer & Cellar at the CTG complex.

“Since we first began the Torch Song journey, I have heard from people all over – including our director Moisés Kaufman, who first met Arnold when Torch Song Trilogy toured in the ‘80s – that Arnold’s pride, strength, and frankness helped them come out, come to terms, and come together,” Michael said in a statement. “This is something I hope our tour will do today. We need Harvey’s play when our world is suddenly and continually confusing and divided.”

No additional casting for the tour has been announced yet.
