Highlights From The Normal Heart

Larry Kramer's groundbreaking drama about "a city in denial" during the beginning of the AIDS epidemic finally receives a Broadway production after 26 years. Tony-winning director Joe Mantello makes a rare return to acting as Ned Weeks, a hot-headed activist trying — along with a tight-knit group of friends — to get doctors, politicians and the press to address the impending AIDS crisis in 1980s New York City. Tony and Oscar-winning actor Joel Grey (who starred in the original Public Theater version of The Normal Heart in 1985) co-directs with Tony-winning director George C. Wolfe.
