wonderboynj: (I Heart NY)
My friend Scott, summed it up far more eloquently than I could...but I did have to say a few things.

If at all possible, see A Normal Heart while you can. This may not happen again in our lifetime.

I came home full of things to say and thoughts I wanted to express. Instead, all I could do was cry.

It's a wonderful work, well written, beautifully directed and acted. The all white stage with it's difficult to read messages of despair, very touching.

I don't think there was one person on that stage who wasn't perfect for the role they were playing.

One of my current favorite actors on Broadway was there, Tony Sheldon who is currently starring as Bernadette in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. The two readers of this journal and my Facebook will note that I ran into Nick Adams on a Wednesday night not too long ago as well.

I wanted to approach Mr. Sheldon after the show and just say Hi and tell him I loved his performance and wish him the best at the Tonys. However, everyone was crying when the show was over, it just seemed so wrong to say something to him at the moment. Really, it seemed wrong to say anything.

I also saw Cynthia Nixon and her partner, both with tears streaming down their faces as they headed West on 45th street. [livejournal.com profile] anarchy_lime spotted Kathleen Chalfant, I did not. Nor did I realize who she was until I googled her.

So, if I was a real critic I would write. "Go see A Normal Heart. Take some tissues, and someone you love. When the show is over, tell everyone you love again and again that you love them. Don't stop."

And if you're reading this. I love you.
