A breakthrough in its time, Harvey Fierstein’s cycle about a New York drag queen’s domestic travails remains a triumphant mix of hilarity, sentimentality, anger, and passion. Hubris Productions’ new revival only offers two-thirds of the trilogy—and even without it, the evening runs nearly three hours. Crucial to the show’s success is Ryan Jarosch’s commanding performance as Arnold Beckoff. He captures Arnold’s comic bravado and the vulnerability it veils, conveying an awkward effeminacy that’s endearing and even sexy. (AW)
