The Critics Applaud The Normal Heart

Theater Rhinoceros’ The Normal Heart might break your own heart.

David Elijah Nahmod, Broke Ass Stuart

The characters become real in their time upon the stage, and as they die on and off the stage. You will become involved in each as distinct individuals. … Jeremy Cole underplays his role to perfection. His transformation from charming and humorous to an AIDS patient with a deteriorating body is so heart wrenching to make you hold your breath. … Leticia Duarte gives a strong performance from her wheel chair and her explosion when the National Institute of Health offers a pittance for AIDS research is an appropriate shocker. 

Kedar K. Adour, MD, For All Events, Nov. 6, 2017

The Normal Heart is a moving chronicle of the birth of AIDS activism.

Vince Vmediaa, Vmedia
[The] cast isn’t afraid to ride an emotional roller coaster that leaves them shedding copious tears as the play moves toward the final curtain.

Richard Dodds, Bay Area Reporter, Nov. 9, 2017

Director John Fisher’s “The Normal Heart” depicts the complex development of political resistance to HIV/AIDS, and ultimately, an existential struggle for the future of queer identity. Theatre Rhino reminds us that when silence is death, there is no choice but to speak up.  … Fisher’s production is significant and impassioned, thanks to the spot-on cast and excellent acting
