Next To Normal Begins Previews on March 27

The new musical Next To Normal is set to begin performances tonight on Broadway at the Booth Theatre. Following an acclaimed run Off-Broadway last year and another run at the Arena Stage in D.C. the show will officially open on April 15. Next To Normal, which was penned by Tom Kitt (music) and Brian Yorkey (book and lyrics), is "a contemporary musical that explores how one suburban household copes with crisis.It shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family's world intact," according to press notes.

I have heard nothing but good things about this show since it first premiered last year at the Second Stage Theatre in New York and I personally can not wait to see it. In a season full of revivals and movie to musical transfers it is nice to have something original on the Great White Way.I expect Next To Normal to be a major contender come Tony time.
