Luke Macfarlane, Lee Pace, Jim Parsons, Ellen Barkin, and the rest of the all-star cast of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart took
time out from a promotional shoot to talk about the importance of the
show being staged on Broadway 26 years after its off-Broadway debut and
what it means to each of them.
"I believe the play has a perspective now that is really meaningful," Pace said. His costar Wayne Alan Wilco, thinks history "is cyclical, and it just keeps coming around, and we need these stories to be told again and again and again."
Parsons was thrilled to be making his Broadway debut in this show, while Macfarlane remembered studying it in school and desperately wanting to be a part of it one day.
