THE NORMAL HEART Announces Complete Casting

“ T H E   N O R M A L   H E A R T ”

ON BROADWAY

ANNOUNCES COMPLETE CASTING

PREVIEWS BEGIN TUESDAY, APRIL 19

OPENING NIGHT SET FOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27

AT THE GOLDEN THEATRE

 Get The Normal Heart Tickets

New York, NY (4/06/11) – Producer Daryl Roth announced today that casting has been completed for the premiere presentation of Larry Kramer’s ground-breaking play, The Normal Heart, on Broadway.   Mark Harelik (Mrs. Warren’s Profession), Richard Topol (The Merchant of Venice), and Wayne Wilcox (Coram Boy) join the previously announced Ellen Barkin as Dr. Emma Brookner, Patrick Breen as Mickey Marcus, John Benjamin Hickey as Felix Turner, Luke Macfarlane as Craig Donner/Grady, Joe Mantello as Ned Weeks, Lee Pace as Bruce Niles, and Jim Parsons as Tommy Boatwright.  Harelik will play the role of Ben Weeks, Topol will play Hiram Keebler/Examining Doctor, and Wilcox will play David. Joel Grey and George C. Wolfe will direct the presentation, which begins its limited 12-week engagement on Tuesday, April 19 at the Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street), with an official opening night set for Wednesday, April 27.

The design team includes David Rockwell (sets), Martin Pakledinaz (costumes), David Weiner (lighting), David Van Tieghem (sound), and Batwin & Robin (projections). 

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. First produced by Joseph Papp at New York’s Public Theater, the play was a critical sensation and a seminal moment in theater history.  So ahead of its time was this play that many of the core issues it addresses – including gay marriage, the healthcare system and, of course, AIDS – are just as relevant today as they were when it first premiered. 

Tickets, priced from $26.50 to $116.50, are available via Telecharge.com, by calling (212) 239-6200, or in person at the John Golden Theatre box office (252 West 45th Street).  The weekly performance schedule will be Tuesday at 7:00 p.m., Wednesday at 8:00 p.m., Thursday at 8:00 p.m., Friday at 8:00 p.m., Saturday at 2:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m., and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.   (The first performance, on Tuesday, April 19, will be at 8:00 p.m.  There will be a special 8:00 p.m. performance on Monday, April 25.  There will be no performance on Thursday, April 28.)

The entire company of The Normal Heart is deeply committed to the message of this play, and so the production is proud to support The Actors Fund, Friends In Deed, amfAR and the Human Rights Campaign.

Paul Davis, the legendary graphic designer of Joseph Papp’s Public Theater, has graciously lent his original logo for this production’s use.

The premiere presentation of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart on Broadwayis produced by Daryl Roth, Paul Boskind and Martian Entertainment in association with Gregory Rae and Jayne Baron Sherman/Alexander Fraser.

JERUSALEM, the critically acclaimed and multi-award winning play by Jez Butterworth and starring Tony and Olivier Award-winner Mark Rylance (Boeing-Boeing, La Bête), is pleased to announce a rush ticket policy.    The production, directed by Ian Rickson, begins previews on Saturday, April 2, prior to a Thursday, April 21 opening night at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street).  JERUSALEM will play a limited 16-week engagement. 

Rush tickets for $26.50 will be available on a first come, first served basis for day of performance when the box office opens at 10:00 AM.  There is a limit of two tickets per customer.  Seats will be sold for the front row and boxes. 

JERUSALEM opened at the Royal Court Theatre in July, 2009 with critics praising Jez Butterworth for his beautiful and comic elegy for a disappearing way of life in rural England and actor Mark Rylance, who was lauded as delivering one of the great stage performances of our time.  The production played an extended sold out run at the Royal Court, before moving to the Apollo Theatre in the West End in January, 2010, where it received an unprecedented set of five-star reviews from 12 London newspapers. 

In his review of JERUSALEM, Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph, wrote “Mark Rylance has a magical gift that elevates him above all the competition and puts him on a par with acting legends Laurence Olivier, Ralph Richardson and Alec Guinness.”   Susannah Clapp, The Observer, said, “Jez Butterworth's gorgeous, expansive new play keeps coming at its audience in unpredictable gusts, rolling from comic to furious, from winsome to bawdy.”  Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard cheered, “In Johnny Byron, Butterworth has created a thrilling role. Rylance’s is an astonishing performance, which confirms that he is one of our finest stage actors.”  Mark Lawson, columnist for the Guardian proclaimed JERUSALEM “unarguably one of the best dramas of the 21st century.”  The London Times also wrote of Mark Rylance, “His performance in Jerusalem is what theatre is all about.  Intelligent, primal, incredibly funny, incredibly emotional.”

JERUSALEM won the 2009 Evening Standard and London Critics’ Circle for Best Play.  Rylance won the 2010 Olivier and 2009 Evening Standard and London Critics’ Circle Best Actor Awards for his performance. 

Joining Rylance and Mackenzie Crook as Ginger will be Tony Award-winner John Gallagher, Jr. (Spring Awakening, American Idiot) as Lee, Max Baker (Cyrano de Bergerac) as Wesley, Geraldine Hughes (Translations) as Dawn and Molly Ranson (August: Osage County) as Pea, alongside seven members of the original Royal Court and West End company: Alan David as The Professor, Aimeé-Ffion Edwards as Phaedra, Danny Kirrane as Davey, Charlotte Mills as Tanya, Sarah Moyle as Ms. Fawcett, Harvey Robinson as Mr. Parsons and Barry Sloane as Troy Whitworth.  Aiden Eyrick and Mark Page alternate in the role of Marky. 

In the woods of South West England, Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron (Mark Rylance), former daredevil motorcyclist and modern-day Pied Piper, is a wanted man.  The council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son wants to be taken to the country fair, a stepfather wants to give him a serious kicking and a motley crew of friends wants his ample supply of drugs and alcohol. 

Mark Rylance is an award-winning actor in theatre, film and television.  He won raves earlier this season for his performance as Valere in David Hirson’s La Bête, on Broadway and in the West End, directed by Matthew Warchus.  He won the 2008 Tony Award and Drama Desk for Best Actor in a Play and a Theatre World Award for his New York stage debut as Robert in Boeing-Boeing.   He is a two-time winner of the Olivier Award for Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron in Jerusalem (2010) and Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing (1993).   He also won the 2010 Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle Awards for Jerusalem.

MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB

AFFIRMS COMMITMENT TO DEVELOPING YOUNG AUDIENCES

WITH $30 TICKETS AVAILABLE TO EVERY PERFORMANCE OF

SMASH HIT PLAY “GOOD PEOPLE”

VIA ONGOING “30 UNDER 30” TICKETING PROGRAM

Today Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) affirmed Manhattan Theatre Club’s ongoing commitment to making affordable tickets available to young theatergoers by offering a limited number of $30 tickets to every performance of the hit play GOOD PEOPLE via MTC’s “30 Under 30” program.

“30 Under 30” is MTC’s program that offers a limited number of $30 tickets to people who are 30 years old or younger. For additional information on the program or to register for “30 Under 30,” visit: http://www.ManhattanTheatreClub.com/30Under30.

In a statement, Executive Producer Barry Grove said, “We couldn't be more thrilled with the artistic success of GOOD PEOPLE and with the full houses we've been seeing. However, it’s vitally important to everyone at MTC to make sure young people have the opportunity to see this wonderful production. When we launched “30 Under30” in 2008, we wanted to make sure younger audiences had access to affordable tickets to all of our productions and I’m thrilled that we’re able to make a number of “30 Under 30” tickets available to program members during the entirety of GOOD PEOPLE’s run at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.”

Frances McDormand, who is currently appearing in GOOD PEOPLE said, "Mix it up, says I! The best theatre experience for me as a performer and an audience member is to be with an audience that is made up of a wide variety of theatergoers. Every age, shape and color. That's what ‘30 Under 30’ is all about. Instead of buying a t-shirt that might not even be 100% cotton, come and see a ‘Grade A’ production of a new American classic, GOOD PEOPLE!"

In addition to GOOD PEOPLE, tickets to MTC’s hit Off-Broadway production of Matthew Lopez’s THE WHIPPING MAN are also available via “30 Under 30.”

INFORMATION ON GOOD PEOPLE

Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire’s GOOD PEOPLE, directed by Daniel Sullivan stars Becky Ann Baker (All My Sons, Assassins), Patrick Carroll (Broadway debut), Tate Donovan (“Damages,” Amy’s View), Emmy Award nominee Renée Elise Goldsberry (“One Life to Live,” Rent), Oscar winner Frances McDormand (Fargo, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Almost Famous), and Oscar winner Estelle Parsons (August: Osage County, “Roseanne”).

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo… where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills… and where Margie Walsh (McDormand) has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling (Donovan) who has made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out.

With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

Together, David Lindsay-Abaire and MTC have brought four outstanding new plays to the New York stage. Their most recent collaboration with director Daniel Sullivan, Rabbit Hole, earned a Tony Award and garnered Lindsay-Abaire the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

For more information on MTC, please visit www.ManhattanTheatreClub.com.

Tickets are available by calling Telecharge at 212-239-6200, online by visiting www.Telecharge.com, or by visiting the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre Box Office (261 West 47th Street). Ticket prices are $57 – $126.

In his review of JERUSALEM, Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph, wrote “Mark Rylance has a magical gift that elevates him above all the competition and puts him on a par with acting legends Laurence Olivier, Ralph Richardson and Alec Guinness.”   Susannah Clapp, The Observer, said, “Jez Butterworth's gorgeous, expansive new play keeps coming at its audience in unpredictable gusts, rolling from comic to furious, from winsome to bawdy.”  Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard cheered, “In Johnny Byron, Butterworth has created a thrilling role. Rylance’s is an astonishing performance, which confirms that he is one of our finest stage actors.”  Mark Lawson, columnist for the Guardian proclaimed JERUSALEM “unarguably one of the best dramas of the 21st century.”  The London Times also wrote of Mark Rylance, “His performance in Jerusalem is what theatre is all about.  Intelligent, primal, incredibly funny, incredibly emotional.”

JERUSALEM won the 2009 Evening Standard and London Critics’ Circle Awards and the 2010 Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Award for Best Play.  Rylance won the 2010 Olivier and 2009 Evening Standard and London Critics’ Circle Best Actor Awards for his performance.

Broadway’s LOMBARDI  to Donate $2 for  Every Ticket Sold in March

To help fight Colon Cancer

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Get Lombardi Tickets

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month.  This year, the Broadway show LOMBARDI, which celebrates the life of legendary football coach Vince Lombardi, will donate $2 to colon cancer research for every ticket sold for a March performance for the period from March 7-31 2011.  

Coach Lombardi was a fighter all his life and never let a battle stop him from reaching his goals, both on and off the field.  But there was one opponent that even Coach couldn’t defeat on his own; he was just 57 years old when he succumbed to colon cancer.   Today, thanks to simple medical screenings, everyone has the means to diagnose and stop colorectal cancer before it’s too late.

Dan Lauria, who stars as the inspirational coach, has taped a public service announcement encouraging people to get screened; beginning next week it can be seen at www.lombardibroadway.com .

Directed by Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail, LOMBARDI is an original play by Academy Award-winning playwright Eric Simonson, based on the best-selling biography When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi by Pulitzer Prize winner David Maraniss.  The production opened in October at Circle in the Square Theatre.

Starring Dan Lauria as the legendary Hall of Fame football coach Vince Lombardi and Judith Light as his wife Marie, LOMBARDI also features Keith Nobbs as Michael McCormick, Bill Dawes as Paul Hornung, Robert Christopher Riley as Dave Robinson and Chris Sullivan as Jim Taylor.  Joining producers Tony Ponturo and Fran Kirmser as special producing partner is the National Football League, marking the organization’s first foray on Broadway.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.telecharge.com, by phone at 212-239-6200, or in person at the Box Office (50th Street, West of Broadway).
