‘The Normal Heart’

‘The Normal Heart’ officially opened on Broadway April 27 at the Golden Theatre and earlier this week, received five Tony Award nominations.

The Normal Heart Synopsis:

Tony?-nominated Ellen Barkin (Ocean’s Thirteen), Patrick Breen (Next Fall), Mark Harelik (Mrs. Warren’s Profession), Tony-nominated John Benjamin Hickey (The Big C), Tony-nominated Joe Mantello (Angels in America), Luke Macfarlane (Brothers and Sisters), Lee Pace (Golden Globe nominee, Pushing Daisies), Jim Parsons (Emmy? Winner, The Big Bang Theory), Richard Topol (The Merchant of Venice) and Wayne Alan Wilcox (Coram Boy) head the all-star cast of Larry Kramer?s THE NORMAL HEART, directed by Joel Grey and George C. Wolfe. Hailed by the critics as “a great night at the theater!” (The New York Times), “A stunning, pulse-pounding revival” (Time Out New York) and “A breathtaking achievement” (Daily News), this groundbreaking story of love, rage and pride will play on Broadway through July 10 only.

The story of a city in denial, THE NORMAL HEART unfolds like a real-life political thriller?as a tight-knit group of friends refuses to let doctors, politicians and the press bury the truth of an unspoken epidemic behind a wall of silence. A quarter-century after it was written, this outrageous, unflinching, and totally unforgettable look at the sexual politics of New York during the AIDS crisis remains one of the theatre?s most powerful evenings ever. It has received five Tony nominations, including Best Revival of a Play and Best Director for Joel Grey and George C. Wolfe.
