Broadway has a late addition to its spring schedule: A revival of The Normal Heart, an award-winning play about love, AIDS and New York in the 1980s, will open April 27, according to The New York Times. The play was written by Larry Kramer, cofounder of the Gay Men’s Health Crisis and ACT UP, and had critically acclaimed productions off-Broadway in the mid-’80s and again in 2004. In October 2010, a staged reading raised $150,000 for charity. Joining the cast are Joe Mantello, John Benjamin Hickey and Ellen Barkin.
