NEW YORK – The AIDS drama “The Normal Heart” has won the Tony Award for best play revival.

Larry Kramer’s historic play about the beginning of an epidemic that has killed millions won the Tony 26 years after it was first mounted at the Public Theater.

The play, which stars Joe Mantello and Ellen Barkin, is the personal story of Kramer, the Cassandra who helped found the Gay Men’s Health Crisis and bickered with colleagues about the best way to address the disease.

It was directed by Joel Grey and George C. Wolfe, and beat out Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia,” Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” and William Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice.”
