BWW Review: THE NORMAL HEART Remains a Timeless Call to Action so Needed Right Now!BWW Review: THE NORMAL HEART Remains a Timeless Call to Action so Needed Right Now!
by Shari Barrett - Mar 4, 2017

The guest production at the Chromolume Theater is magnificently directed by Marilyn McIntye on the small stage, a large part of which is due to the 5 moveable set pieces designed by David Mauer which are moved about to create all the different rooms so necessary for the production. Set changes are inspirational to watch, choreographed like a ballet down to the slightest detail. (more...)
