Social: Broadway Reacts to the Passing of Larry Kramer
As BroadwayWorld sadly reported earlier today, legendary playwright, author, and activist, Larry Kramer passed away this morning. See how the Broadway community is reacting to the passing of this legendary artist.
I had the incredible honor of playing young Larry (Ned) in a reading of Destiny of Me. It was one of the most thrilling evenings of my life. To prepare, I spent a couple of hours at Larry's apartment to discuss his play and to discuss life. I sat there, utterly in awe. (1/3)- Gideon Glick (@gidglick) May 27, 2020
He grilled me about my generation. "Why don't you guys do more!? This administration is destroying us. Twitter isn't enough!" I told him my thoughts, but knew they were insufficient. He commanded deep focus and deep respect. (2/3)- Gideon Glick (@gidglick) May 27, 2020
He fought so hard for us. Our community owes him everything. Rest in peace, Larry. You deserve peace. You're Saint Larry to me. (3/3)- Gideon Glick (@gidglick) May 27, 2020
Larry Kramer was a superhero. A man who never let comfort get in the way of progress. An outspoken advocate, saving countless lives, he led a community to stand up and demand recognition/to be acknowledged as human. Let us keep raising hell against all injustices in his honor.- Benj Pasek (@benjpasek) May 27, 2020

Larry Kramer was an American hero who led a fierce and often lonely battle for action when an American president and New York's mayor refused to mobilize against a devastating plague.https://t.co/YyJWVZmGNe- Frank Rich (@frankrichny) May 27, 2020
