This week on Open Air, host David Latulippe talks with actors John Fisher and Morgan Lange about the premiere at Theatre Rhinoceros of ‘The Normal Heart’, a play by Larry Kramer. Set in the early eighties, the play deals with the rise of the HIV–AIDS crisis in New York City, as seen through the eyes of writer/activist Ned Weeks (played by John Fisher, who also directs), the gay founder of a prominent HIV advocacy group. ‘The Normal Heart’ runs through November 25 at The Gateway Theatre (Formerly The Eureka Theatre); 215 Jackson St. (at Battery St.) in San Francisco.
