PlayBlog   Elton John and David Furnish Talk About Themes of The Normal Heart (Video)
The Normal Heart, which received five Tony Award nominations earlier this week, officially opened on Broadway April 27 at the Golden Theatre. Elton John and David Furnish recently visited the production, and here they discuss the relevance of the play written by Larry Kramer.

The play is described as "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."

The cast features Ellen Barkin, Patrick Breen, Mark Harelik, John Benjamin Hickey, Joe Mantello, Luke Macfarlane, Lee Pace, Jim Parsons, Richard Topol and Wayne Alan Wilcox and will only play 96 performances.

The limited engagement runs until July 10.
