Tickets at Hayes Theater

The Hayes Theater was built by producer Winthrop Ames in 1912 as The Little. It was built as a rebellion of sorts against commercial theater—as the auditorium only held 299 seats. In the 1950s it was used to record radio and TV, including The Merv Griffin Show.


In 1983, it was renamed after beloved American actress Helen Hayes, following the destruction of a theatre by the same name in the previous year. When it’s not being used for legitimate theater, CBS still uses the venue for radio recordings.

Story for Torch Song

Critics have fallen in love with HARVEY FIERSTEIN’s TORCH SONG, now on Broadway for a strictly limited engagement.

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls it “Spectacular! A Grade-A energizing joy!” And Entertainment Weekly raves, “TORCH SONG brings laughter and tears simultaneously. It’s impossible not to feel electricity in the theater.” Don’t miss this “profoundly moving” (The Hollywood Reporter) production of the Tony Award®-winning play, starring Drama Desk Award winner MICHAEL URIE (“Younger,” “Ugly Betty,” Buyer & Cellar) and Academy Award® and Tony winner MERCEDES RUEHL (The Fisher King, Lost in Yonkers), directed by Tony nominee MOISÉS KAUFMAN (The Laramie Project, I Am My Own Wife).

Hilarious and heart-wrenching TORCH SONG follows Arnold Beckoff’s odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.

Join Arnold on this all too human journey about the families we’re born into, the families we choose and the battles to bring them all home.
