A contemporary rock musical about the devastating toll that mental illness takes on a suburban family may seem odd ... but Next to Normal became one of Broadway's biggest and most compelling hits in recent years. This riveting show nabbed three Tony Awards in 2009 and the Pulitzer Prize for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a seemingly normal modern family's struggles with the effects of bipolar disorder. Each character's journey in this San Diego Musical Theatre production is further punctuated by powerful music scored by Tom Kitt (American Idiot). Featuring 30 original songs, including "Just Another Day," "You Don't Know" and "Superboy and the Invisible Girl," Next to Normal is, in the words of The New York Times, "much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical."

I had no problem with goldstar, as usual. The film was interesting, even intriguing; I enjoyed it very much. However, once again I had a serious problem with the theater. It can become unbearably cold in a matter of minutes. I brought a light jacket in preparation for the change of temperature, but a light jacket didn't do enough for me. I had wanted to stay for the discussion afterwards, but I ran out of the theater. I have already purchased tickets for another event in the theater. This time I will be prepared. I suppose the next time it will be too hot! Whatever! I just wish they'd get a grip on this one irritating fault. It's a big, old theater and I know it won't go away. I'll try harder to accommodate the theater, but I'd like the theater to do the same for me.

*_Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean_ (2012), Director: Matthew Mishory, 93min, USA. *
An intimate portrait of James Dean on the cusp of achieving notoriety as both a great actor and an American icon. This film presents a side of James Dean seldom seen. Aware of his own potential to be legendary, he is at once childlike and world-weary; a brute and a romantic; an intellectual and an Indiana shit-kicker; a playboy and a man of great sensitivity. An unflinching and honest exploration of Dean’s complicated sexuality and formative relationships.
