Next To Normal Wins Pulitzer Prize

It was just announced today that Next To Normal has won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The show which recently celebrated it's first year on Broadway is the first musical to win the coveted prize since Rent won in 1996. Finalists were The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity by Kristoffer Diaz; Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo by Rajiv Joseph; and In the Next Room or the vibrator play by Sarah Ruhl. As I've posted in previous blogs about the show Next To Normal is by far one of the best shows that I have seen in all my years in New York. Being a composer of my own musical Avarice I am pleased to see a show as original Next To Normal become as successful as it has. Let's hope this much deserved award will translate into more ticket sales for this groundbreaking musical. For those of you who haven't seen the show I highly encourage you do on your next visit to New York. It is a must see.
