Kramer also sat down on "The Early Show" to talk about the themes of his play and the HIV/AIDS crisis—an issue that our society still faces.
The production opened April 27 at the Golden Theatre and 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 limited engagement runs until July 10.
