Ellen Barkin, recently nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in The Normal Heart, sat down with Jimmy Fallon to talk about the new play that officially opened on Broadway April 27.

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 also features 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.

On "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," Barkin talks about first meeting Fallon and her experience with The Normal Heart.
