Barbra Likely To Direct 'The Normal Heart'...

Most fans will have heard about this project on and off since the 1980s... Barbra has often talked about wanting to turn the play into a movie. Barbra mentioned it in today's Washington Post Interview.

Will she do it?

The Normal Heart is a play written by Larry Kramer, dealing with the rise of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City from 1981-1984, through the eyes of Ned Weeks, the gay Jewish founder of a prominent HIV advocacy group. It was one of the first plays to deal with the issue.

The Normal Heart was first performed at The Public Theater in 1985, produced by Joseph Papp, and has since gone on to be produced internationally.
