Off-Ramp | Off-Ramp host John Rabe and contributors share thoughts on arts, culture, and life in L.A.

Triple-threat Joel Grey on Off-Ramp this weekend.

Monday, the Geffen Playhouse is hosting a staged reading of “The Normal Heart,” Larry Kramer’s wrenching play about the AIDS crisis. This performance is a 25th anniversary benefit performance for a clinic at the LA Gay and Lesbian Center.

It’s directed by Joel Grey.

25 years ago, Grey played Ned, the central character in “The Normal Heart.” He’ll join me this weekend on Off-Ramp to talk about “The Normal Heart” and the rest of his long career on Broadway, movies, television, and photography, which includes 'Cabaret," "The Muppet Show," "Chicago," "Wicked," "Alias," and "Dallas."
