Next to Normal Opens This Week!

November 11, 2013

Midvale Main Street Theatre is remounting their acclaimed production of Next To Normal. 

It’s a musical about a next to normal kind of family. With a twist.

And isn’t that just how it goes?

Not familiar with the show? Ben Brantley wrote this about it in the New York Times back in 2009:

No show on Broadway right now makes as direct a grab for the heart — or wrings it as thoroughly — as “Next to Normal” does. This brave, breathtaking musical focuses squarely on the pain that cripples the members of a suburban family, and never for a minute does it let you escape the anguish at the core of their lives. “Next to Normal” does not, in other words, qualify as your standard feel-good musical. Instead this portrait of a manic-depressive mother and the people she loves and damages is something much more: a feel-everything musical, which asks you, with operatic force, to discover the liberation in knowing where it hurts.

Next to Normal opens Thursday, Nov 14 and plays through Saturday, November 23rd. Showtime is 7pm–Thursday, Friday and Saturday–with a Sunday evening performance at 6pm on November 17th.
