WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Fueled by love, anger, hope, and pride, The Normal Heart centers around a circle of friends struggling to contain the mysterious disease ravaging New York's gay community. First produced in 1985 by Joseph Papp at New York's Public Theater, the show immediately became a critical sensation and a seminal moment in theater history. Kramer's unapologetic tackling of the AIDS epidemic, gay marriage, and our national healthcare system casts theatrical light on issues that are as present in today's national discourse as they were when the play first premiered a quarter of a century ago. George C. Wolfe's 2011 Broadway staging received universal acclaim and was the recipient of three Tony Awards, three Drama Desk Awards, and the Outer Circle Critics Circle Award, all naming it Best Revival of a Play. The show was also awarded the Special Citation from the New York Drama Critics Circle.
