Theatre Rhinoceros in San Francisco is presenting “The Normal Heart” by Larry Kramer for 19 performances from November 3rd through November 25th at the Gateway Theatre directed by John Fisher. This iconic drama addresses the public & private indifference to the AIDS plague & one man's lonely fight to awaken the world to the crisis. “The Normal Heart” was first produced to raves by audiences in New York, London, Los Angeles & beyond. This historical drama follows Ned Weeks, a gay activist enraged at the indifference of public officials & the gay community during the 1980’s. While trying to save the world from itself, he confronts the personal toll of AIDS when his lover dies of the disease. Originally published in 1985 it was celebrated in a passionate & eloquent 2011 Broadway revival. “The Normal Heart” is a Theatre Rhinoceros Premiere. It was last presented in San Francisco area by ACT in September 2012 & made its TV premiere on HBO directed by Ryan Murphy in May 2014 starring Mark Ruffalo which won 2 Emmy Awards including Best TV Movie & Best Supporting Actor for Matt Bomer.
