The level of anger, helplessness and sorrow rises inexorably along with the death toll like flood waters from a storm surge in Outré Theatre Company’s shattering production of The Normal Heart. The play documenting the AIDS epidemic in New York City during the early 1980s is depicted with scorching and excoriating emotional honesty.

Thinking Cap Theatre sets The Importance of Being Earnest in a madcap lampoon of New York City’s disco era.
