Next to Normal, the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical that ended its Broadway run Jan. 6, 2011, will resurface in a fresh staging Oct. 25-Nov. 11. Co-founder David Norwood will stage the production at a New York City venue to be determined.

From May 16-June 3, 2013, Musically Human will present Time Between Us: A Musical Snapshot, which debuted to strong reviews at the 2011 New York Musical Theatre Festival. It has music by Brett Schrier and book and lyrics by Tess Barker and Schrier. The troupe's co-founder, Aaron Pratt, will helm the production.

Here's how it's billed: "Fresh out of art school, best friends Matthew and Morgan begin 'real life' with the shared dream of having it all. But is it really possible to build the perfect career and the ideal personal life? Across the span of thirty years, irresistible opportunities and heart-wrenching decisions bring each of the friends towards achieving half or their dream - and force them to leave the other half behind. A beautifully haunting portrait of best friends, passions and time."

The company will also present Our Time III, an evening of songs from up-and-coming musical songwriters, on May 20, 2013. Casting and venues will be announced at a later date. Phone (212) 352-3101, or visit musicallyhuman.org.
