The Normal Heart Virtual Event

It was the hottest virtual event of the weekend — a celebrity reading of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart — and your ticket purchase can support STORIES: The AIDS Monument.

FAM is proud to be a Community Partner for ONE Archives’ star-studded virtual reading of The Normal Heart on Saturday, May 8 at 5:00 p.m. (Pacific).

Thank you for joining us for this one-time streaming live performance, followed by a Q+A with the Director Paris Barclay and all-star diverse cast.

This wwas the first time the Tony Award-winning play features a predominately BIPOC (Black/ Indigenous/People of Color) and LGBTQ cast.

“Through today’s lens, the story of a marginalized people pushed to activism by the onslaught of an epidemic clearly was worth telling again. We’ve assembled an extraordinary cast that makes this particular reading even more timely. And we hope, more powerful,” Barclay said.

Cast members include Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us, Black Panther); Laverne Cox (Orange Is The New Black, Promising Young Woman); Jeremy Pope (Hollywood, Choir Boy); Vincent Rodriguez III (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Insatiable): Guillermo Díaz (Scandal, Weeds); Jake Borelli (Grey’s Anatomy, The Thing About Harry); Ryan O’Connell (Special, Will & Grace); Daniel Newman (Walking Dead, Homeland); Jay Hayden (The Catch, The House Bunny); and Danielle Savre (Station 19, Heroes).
