Luke MacFarlane, Lee Pace, Jim Parsons, Ellen Barkin and the rest of the all-star cast of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart took time out from a promotional shoot to discuss the importance and continued relevance of the show being staged on Broadway for the first time 26 years after its Off-Broadway debut.

“I believe the play has a perspective now that is really meaningful,” Pace said. His costar, Wayne Alan Wilcox, thinks history “is cyclical, and it just keeps coming around, and we need these stories to be told again and again and again.”

Parsons was thrilled to be making his Broadway debut in this show while MacFarlane remembered studying it in school and desperately wanting to be a part of it one day.
