"'The Normal Heart' is in good hands at New Repertory Theatre. Director Shira Helena Gitlin and a wholly committed cast [...] have fashioned an intense and powerful production that’s worthy of its grim subject." - The Boston Globe

"New Rep stages a thoughtful and timely production of 'The Normal Heart'" - WBUR

"This is a dramatically rich play with several important themes...under Shira Helena Gitlin’s taut direction, the New Rep cast brings forceful expression to all of these themes." - Jewish Journal

"New Rep's stage director for 'The Normal Heart,' Shira Helena Gitlin, has staged a fine adaptation of Kramer’s story with a minimal cast, minimal sets and optimal performances. " - Metrmag
