"Next to Normal" Invited Audience
“Next to Normal is a brave, breathtaking musical...It is something much more than a feel-good musical. It is a feel-everything musical.”
—The New York Times
The Goodmans seem like a perfect family. The only problem is that sometimes mother Diana seems, well...a little too happy. Her husband Dan worries all the time. Her daughter Natalie seems awfully intent on getting that scholarship to Yale and leaving home.
And her son Gabe, well...that’s another story entirely.
Since its Broadway debut in 2009, Next to Normal has earned accolades around the world for its tender, insightful, funny and heart-breaking portrayal of a family trying bravely to come to terms with life, and love, and loss.
These photos are from the final dress rehearsal.
