Oooh! Luke MacFarlane, on-stage within touching distance? Sign us up!
Arena Stage (Washington, D.C.) announced today that fresh off their Broadway run, Luke MacFarlane, Patrick Breen, and Christopher J. Hanke will be leading the national tour of the play, The Normal Heart.
Details after the jump.
Coinciding with the return of AIDS 2012, the international AIDS conference, which will be back in the United States for the first time in 22 years, The Normal Heart will play a limited engagement at the Arena Stage from June 8 to July 29, as the first stop on its nationwide tour.
The Normal Heart “focuses on the rise of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City between 1981 and 1984, as seen through the eyes of writer/activist Ned Weeks, the gay Jewish-American founder of a prominent HIV advocacy group. Ned prefers loud public confrontations to the calmer, more private strategies favored by his associates, friends, and closeted lover Felix Turner, none of whom is prepared to throw themselves into the media spotlight. Their differences of opinion lead to frequent arguments that threaten to undermine their mutual goal.”
