The Normal Heart - 2012 - US Tour

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 politics of New York during the AIDS crisis remains one of the theater's most powerful evenings ever.
