next to normal

NEXT TO NORMAL is one of my favorites. Around about this time of year, you can’t help but think about family dynamics and this is a show that goes to the heart of that.  I am so excited that Alice Ripley (Tony Award-Winning Broadway Star) is going to go on tour. Here is an interesting feature story in the L.A. Times where it is starting its tour: For Alice Ripley, Body Swapping is ‘Next To Normal’

Have any of you seen – NEXT TO NORMAL?

  1. I saw “Next to Normal” twice on Broadway with Ms. Ripley. She is every cliched theater compliment – she is a revelation, she was born to play this part, she IS Diana. It’s nothing short of magic to watch her inhabit this incredible show, and I am absolutely thrilled she is bringing her performance with this tour to the rest of the country. Chicago is in for such a treat! (This is all to say nothing of the brilliance of “Next to Normal” itself, which truly earned its Pulitzer.)
