Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart -- which follows the lives of a group of friends during the early days of the AIDS epidemic -- has opened to rave reviews on Broadway, with The New York Times calling it a "passionately acted" drama that "blasts you like an open, overstoked furnace."
From the review: "More than a quarter of a century after it first scorched New York, The Normal Heart is breathing fire again. The passionately acted new Broadway production of Larry Kramer's watershed drama from 1985 -- an indictment of a world unwilling to confront the epidemic that would come to be known as AIDS -- blasts you like an open, overstoked furnace. Your eyes are pretty much guaranteed to start stinging before the first act is over, and by the play's end even people who think they have no patience for polemical theater may find their resistance has melted into tears. No, make that sobs."
