Let's go over how shallow I am. When I first heard that a production of The Normal Heart was coming to Broadway, I wasn't terribly excited. Not that I didn't like the play. But I'd read it and seen the Off-Broadway revival about 10 years ago and didn't feel a strong need to see it again. Then I read the announcement that Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory is joining the cast and suddenly ... it's must-see theater!
