Tonight Boston’s SpeakEasy Stage production of Next to Normal opens at the Calderwood Pavilion on Tremont Street in the South End. This play won 3 Tony Awards and received the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama so I know the story line will be compelling. According to the website the show has a pop rock musical score which should add an element of drama to this story of a suburban family dealing with the direct and indirect effects of mental illness.
The cast of six includes three handsome faces who are making their debut with the SpeakEasy Stage. Native New Yorker – Chris Caron, Northeastern University graduate – Michael Levesque, and Boston Conservatory’s very own – Michael Tacconi.
Look for my review of the show early next week, and in the interim start talking to friends to line up a date to step out and enjoy this show.
I saw it on Sunday and loved it! SpeakEasy did an amazing job with this phenomenal work! I, too, look forward to your review. Get your tickets if you haven’t yet! It WILL sell out!
Ordered tix last week – can’t wait! (Glad they extended it…) Looking forward to your review.
We saw Next To Normal when it was in Los Angeles. It’s definitely not the typical musical, but is amazing nonetheless.
