Luke heading to New York to co-star in a Broadway play in April
The play is called Normal Heart, written by Larry Kramer, which tells the story of the early years of the AIDS epidemic in New York and the silence that follows from both the political and media outlets. Luke Macfarlane plays two roles, Craig Donner, and Grady. He joins the production with the likes of Ellen Barkin, Patrick Breen, John Benjamin Hickey, Joe Mantello, Lee Pace, and Jim Parsons. Normal Heart is directed by Joel Grey and produced by Daryl Roth and Paul Boskind. It will take place at the Golden Theatre, where Driving Miss Daisy is currently performing.
The play will preview beginning April 19th, before its opening on April 27th. It will run through 12 weeks until its final performance on July 3rd. Ticket prices range from $26.50 to $116.50. Tickets can be purchased via the main website at The Normal Heart
A brief synopsis:
The story of a city in denial, The Normal Heart unfolds like a real-life political thriller — as a tight-knit group of friends refuses to let doctors, politicians and the press bury the truth of an unspoken epidemic behind a wall of silence.
Pics (hopefully) will come soon.
