The Normal Heart

Written by Larry Kramer
Directed by Simon Levy
Produced by Deborah Lawlor, Stephen Sachs

EXTENDED UNTIL DECEMBER 15TH 2013!

The iconic American play about a nation in denial. Fueled by love, anger, hope and pride, 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. Thirty years 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. First produced by Joseph Papp at New York’s Public Theater, the play was a critical sensation and a seminal moment in theater history. The play was so ahead of its time that many of the core issues it addresses – including gay marriage, a broken healthcare system and, of course, AIDS – are just as relevant today as they were when it first premiered.

Starring Verton R. Banks, Bill Brochtrup, Tim Cummings, Matt Gottlieb, Fred Koehler, Stephen O’Mahoney, Ray Paolantonio, Lisa Pelikan, Dan Shaked, Jeff Witzke
