Audience Comments

"The Normal Heart"

We finally got to see "The Normal Heart" at Curtain Call Theater. It lived up to its billing as 'brilliant". Carol Max's direction (her acting too) was excellent. Frank Oliva's set design set the stage appropriately stark. Sherry Recinella's costumes were subtle enough to be just about perfect. As for the acting, they all delved deeply into the characters with Chris Foster just an iota ahead of the rest, because his rich voice, even in the quietest moments was clear as a bell and articulate as needed. So profound is the effect of this show that in the talk back session afterwards yours truly was struck speechless....a most unusual situation.

"The Normal Heart"
Congratulations to the cast and crew of The Normal Heart. It was riveting, beautiful, important and brave. Just sorry I didn't know in advance that there would be a discussion following this performance.

"The Normal Heart"

Although I went downstairs yesterday to congratulate you and the cast, I want to let you know I woke up still thinking of the play. I have encouraged everyone of my FB friends to go. I realized while watching that although I turned 30 in 1982, I was simply not very aware of what was going on with AIDS! Were it not for the heroes depicted in the play how many more would have died?

Thank you for choosing this play!

Best, Jo Anne Assini
