- For the 2011 Broadway premiere of the play "The Normal Heart," the playwright Larry Kramer wrote a flyer called "Please Know" (which he often handed out to exiting audience members himself). "Please Know" explained that most of the events and characters in the play were based on real events and people. Some of the real people he said his characters were based on included: Paul Popham, one of the founders of the Gay Men's Health Crisis (the basis for Bruce); Dr. Linda Laubenstein, an early AIDS researcher (the basis for Emma); and Rodger McFarlane, creator of the crisis hotline that was the precursor to the GMHC and gay rights activist (the basis for Emma). Like McFarlane, Tommy is a Southerner (McFarlane was born and raised in South Alabama). Like Laubenstein, Emma uses a wheelchair (Laubenstein was left paraplegic after a childhood bout with polio). The character of Ned is based on Kramer himself.

- The original off-Broadway production of "The Normal Heart" opened in April 1985 at the Joseph Papp Public Theater/LuEsther Hall. The cast included: Phillip Richard Allen (Ben Weeks); David Allen Brooks (Bruce Niles); Brad Davis; (Ned Weeks); William DeAcutis (Tommy Boatwright);
