“Like ''La Cage aux Folles,'' ''Torch Song Trilogy'' presents a homosexual world that any mother, with the possible exception of Arnold Beckoff's, would love. Greatly shortened from Mr. Fierstein's long-running, Tony Award-winning play, the film version emphasizes the lovable at every turn, but the surprise is that it does this entertainingly and well.”
— The New York Times
“As written and performed by Harvey Fierstein as a long-running stage hit, it was seen as a sort of nostalgic visit to the problems that gays had in the years before the horror of AIDS. The movie has more or less the same focus, but because it's a movie, it becomes more intimate and intense.”
