AWESOME GIVEAWAY: 2 Tickets to The Normal Heart

I don't know if it's the fact that London's National Theater is calling this play "one of the greatest 100 plays of the 20th century" or if it's the limited engagement (supply and demand, people), but I'm excited to see Broadway's newest play, The Normal Heart.







New York City during the AIDS crisis was a hotspot of controversy and reticence, yet while sadness seemed inevitable, hope prevailed in so many places. The Normal Heart is advertised as a political thriller that tells the story of a close group of friends fighting to break down the wall of silence surrounding the AIDS epidemic. Starring Ellen Barkin (Emmy® Winner, Before Women Had Wings), Patrick Breen (Next Fall), John Benjamin Hickey (The Big C), Joe Mantello (Tony® nominee, Angels in America), Luke MacFarlane (Brothers and Sisters, Lee Pace (Golden Globe nominee, Pushing Daisies) and Jim Parsons (Emmy® Winner, The Big Bang Theory), I'm sure this will be a powerful night of theater you won't soon forget.

All my readers are in luck! I'm giving away a pair of tickets to see The Normal Heart on Broadway! The tickets must be picked up at the box office the day of the show. There are 4 easy ways to win and each comment counts as an entry. Please include your email in any comments so I know how to contact you if you are the winner.

  9. I am following you, and with this cast and this buzz . . . who wouldn't want to see this show. And I would totally challenge anyone to a round of Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock for the chance to meet Jim Parsons

  10. Hi! Am now following your blog and your Twitter, and retweeted the contest (@ladystardust25). :) I've been dying to see this play, as I've heard wonderful things about it for years, and missed my chance to see the one-night staged reading recently that led up to this production! I love Cheyenne Jackson and Ellen Barkin especially, and am psyched to see Joe Mantello acting again, not to mention direction by Joel Grey!

    My email addy is lady_stardust25@yahoo.com. Thanks!

  32. Following you here and on Twitter. I want to see the show because I saw it off-Broadway in 2004 and it was honestly one of the best shows I have ever seen (and I see A LOT). Probably Top 3. It changed me on a cellular level and is to date the only work of theatre that has actually made me want to take political action. And that cast!
