Jim Parsons has Broadway ‘Heart’

Thesp, Lee Pace join the cast of play

Jim Parsons and Lee Pace have joined the cast of the Broadway staging of “The Normal Heart.”

Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Pace (“Pushing Daisies”) play activists Tommy Boatwright and Bruce Niles in Larry Kramer’s 1985 drama about the early years of the AIDS epidemic. Thesps join a cast that already includes Ellen Barkin, Joe Mantello and John Benjamin Hickey.

Both Parsons and Pace make their Main Stem debuts in the show.

Helmed by Joel Grey, production was inspired by a benefit reading of the play last year, also directed by Grey and starring Mantello and Hickey.
