Checking the Pulse of Young People and 'The Normal Heart'

In a report on Tony-award-winning revival of "The Normal Heart," Patrick Healy of The New York Times checks in with younger gay audience members at the Golden Theater to see if a story about a chapter in gay history long before they were alive resonates now. My favorite is Ian Smith, a decidedly not post-gay 29-year-old who says that if you're gay, you're always struggling for something. (Hello, Albany!) "It's normal but it's not normal. Even in New York."

I love this play; though honestly, being in Kentucky, I've only ever read it. :)
