The Normal Heart

New York, NY

Larry Kramer’s groundbreaking play, The Normal Heart opened on Broadway to enthusiastic reviews, the winner of 3 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Play (also receiving 5 Tony nominations), winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Revival of a Play, the New York Drama Critics Circle Special Citation and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble.

Working with director George C. Wolfe, batwin + robin designed projections that created a sense of time and place for each scene while honoring the victims of the HIV/AIDS epidemic by covering the set, and eventually the entire theater, with a growing number of their names.

“More than any naturalistic version, this design summons the very climate of fear and uncertainty in which the characters in The Normal Heart lived and breathed and, too often, died.”
