NEXT TO NORMAL Will Transfer To London’s West End Next Year
There will be light! The critically acclaimed Donmar Warehouse Production of Next To Normal will transfer to the West End next year. The limited run begins at London's Wyndham’s Theatre on Tuesday June 18, 2024.
The musical features music by Pulitzer, Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning composer Tom Kitt and a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning writer Brian Yorkey
Next To Normal is an intimate exploration of family and illness, loss and grief. At its heart is Diana Goodman, a suburban wife and mother living with bipolar disorder and haunted by her past. Donmar Artistic Director Michael Longhurst directs this powerful rock musical.
The original production of the musical debuted on Broadway at the Booth theater in 2010, with Alice Ripley playing the leading role of Diana. It premiered at the Donmar Warehouse this past summer starring Cassie Levy as Diana and Jamie Parker as Dan.
“Some stories pierce the heart of the human condition: Tom and Brian’s astonishing musical does just that - facing our deepest vulnerabilities whilst celebrating our capacity to endure. The outpouring of emotion from audiences at the Donmar was incredible: you could hear audible sobs before they surged to their feet every single night - like nothing I’ve experienced. Tickets were impossible to come by, so I am beyond thrilled that more people will now be able to experience the work of this extraordinary creative team,” said Artistic Director Michael Longhurst.
