Description

The most talked about new show on Broadway is the groundbreaking musical Next to NormalFrom the director of Rent_, this Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical “pushes Broadway in new directions” (_Rolling Stone). With a thrilling contemporary score by Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, Next to Normal is an emotional powerhouse of a musical about a family trying to take care of themselves and each other. “It is much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical.”_ (The New York Times)_

“This is a unique opportunity to present Next to Normal here at the Ordway in its first national tour,” says Patricia A. Mitchell, Ordway president and CEO. “To tackle the complex subject of bipolar disorder in a stage production strikes me as a harrowing challenge for any director, but Next to Normal takes on the challenge and does so with brilliant grace that showcases the unique power of musical theater.”

Alice Ripley, who received the 2009 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her performance in Next to Normal, reprises her acclaimed performance in the musical’s 36-week multi-city North American tour. Next to Normal also features Asa Somers (Dan), Curt Hansen (Gabe), Emma Hunton (Natalie), Jeremy Kushnier (Dr. Madden/Dr. Fine) and Preston Sadleir (Henry).
