A Late Addition to the Season
Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart will be joining the 2010-2011 Broadway season as one of the last productions to open with a chance for a 2011 Tony Award. The revival will open on April 27th, just under the wire -- shows must open by April 28th to be eligible this year rather than next. The show is expected to play at the Golden Theatre, where the revival of Driving Miss Daisy is expected to close on April 9th. This play was among the first in New York theater to face AIDS and homosexuality directly. The show will star actor/director Joe Mantello in the central role of Ned Weeks.
